Budgeting and Basketball

With Basketball you start with a plan. You go up against the unknown. The unexpected happens. You take shots; some you make and some you don’t. Sometimes you are behind and sometimes you are ahead. You take breaks, sometimes you call a time out and re-evaluate; and sometimes you receive instructions from a coach.

Kind of sounds like budgeting except people have this strange expectation about budgeting. They try to do it without a plan. They run into the unknowns and the unexpected and they act surprised. When they get a head they spend it and when they get behind they borrow. They don’t call a time out…they just keep doing the same thing and expect a different result. Rarely do they stop and get advice from a coach, yet they will get advice from their broke friend or neighbor.

Is it time for YOU to get SERIOUS about YOUR game?  Actually it isn’t a game, it’s your life.

You have a choice, and the choice is yours.
