- To be successful with this program I suggest you first simply watch it from beginning to end. Then, review it, allowing yourself to pause and take notes. A few of the exercises may take some time, so give each one the energy and focus required. We will also use a series of tips and techniques that I call the Core Essentials. The Core Essentials help us stay centered and in control as we determine what and how to make adjustments to our financial lives. There are tools for both self organization and tools for organizing and structuring tasks.
We'll introduce each one in detail as we go through the material. One more thing, because it's necessary to illustrate some of these concepts with examples, I'll share stories and throw around numbers or choices that are meant to reflect common experiences. But there's no way we can cover every situation. No matter the particular example, the behavior I'm highlighting is meant to be universal. Whether you're struggling to pay for groceries or wondering if you can afford to buy a vacation home, the model of healthy financial decision making is the same.
So try not to get too distracted if a certain example doesn't reflect your circumstances. It's just one more thing to notice as you explore your own financial life.
