First and foremost, we are praying for the citizens, friends, colleagues and family members associated with the war in Ukraine.
It’s difficult not to get overwhelmed reading the news. With the pandemic and its associated stress of the last few years, it’s only natural to react to each ping of our phone’s news apps with a deep sigh and a cynical “what now?”
The truth is, there’s always good news and bad news if you dig deep enough. For every international crisis, there’s a medical breakthrough. Each victory has a counteracting problem when you step back and take a look at the big picture.
Does this mean that we should just shut off the news and simply ignore what's happening? No, it’s good to stay informed.
Keeping all of that information in perspective, though, can be difficult. If you aren’t careful, it can lead to emotional or rash decision-making.
Your financial strategy, for instance, has been developed with the “big picture” in mind. Many things can and will happen in that time, and your strategy gives room for those events to rise, take place, and then fall into the rearview.
Keeping it all in perspective can be tough at times, but this is one of the many reasons you aren’t going it alone.
When times seem turbulent, it’s good to have someone to reach out to who can help you keep that big picture in mind.
Give me a call if you’re feeling that turbulence; I’d be happy to check in with you and help you keep your focus.
If you don't have a financial strategy, let's develop one.
