Automating your finances can take the pain out of wealth-building behavior.
You know how it goes. The thought flashes through your mind—”I need to start saving money!”
And then… well, that’s it. You read a few articles on saving and try to spend less, but after a week or two your mind has moved on.
Why? Because all forms of positive change are energy intensive, at least at first. And your brain, smart as it is, likes conserving energy.
So to jump-start saving, you need to take several one time actions that are borderline thoughtless.
Enter automation. It’s a small step with massive return potential.
- Log in to your online banking account
- Set up a deposit
- Choose to make the deposit recurring instead of one time
Like that, you’ve set the stage for dozens of wealth-building actions well into the future.
And what did it take? A few taps over a few minutes.
So what are you waiting for? Automate your savings right now. I’ll wait! Even if it’s $5 per month, it’s a step in the right direction—to build wealth for your future!
