This quote from financial author Nathan W. Morris sums it up: “It’s not always that we need to do more but rather that we need to focus on less.”
It’s the same with your financial plan. It’s full of trade-offs like risk vs. return, saving vs. paying off debt, retiring now or later, spending in retirement, or making bequests. As with your summer plans, the key here is to clarify your financial goals. Then you can prioritize and feel comfortable with the trade-offs.
