Have you made your New Year’s resolutions for 2017 yet?
There is always something to scribble down as a resolution right before the ball drops. Most of those things are never stuck with, because we aren’t that serious about them. Why not get a head start this year with some meaningful resolutions that have value?
I’ll Make The Same Effort To Protect What I Have, As To Gain More
Although we are thankful the election is out of the way there is still plenty of uncertainty out there. One of the most common goals people set for a new year is monetary goals. But in our rush to gain more, let’s not forget to protect what we have, and minimize the waste.
I Will Not Pay More Taxes Than I Need To
One of the most significant areas of waste each year, especially for New York residents is taxes. If we keep overpaying in taxes we are throwing away precious resources, and are encouraging more high taxes. Make this the year to get a good accountant, challenge your property tax bill, and be proactive about looking for ways to cut your taxes throughout the year. Then share what you learn about saving with others too.
I’ll Think About Schools
Think about schools and education and what you can add to conversation to help them be more efficient and effective. Schools continue to be one of the biggest drains on the economy, property taxes, and personal finances. Yet, we continue to see schools being poorly effective in actually educating and preparing upcoming generations for life and work.
Celebrate all the freedoms we do have. That includes the ability to learn, own real estate, investing, and ability to participate in legal process. New Year’s Eve is a great time to start to put this into practice.
I’ll Think As Big As Possible
Think as big as possible. What’s your full potential? How can you maximize your impact, contribution, and achievements?
