Eat That Frog - Now!





I appreciate having all your professional connections and I am pleased to know from your feedback, that you are reading posts you find valuable.  However, to make our connection really work, we may have to Eat that frog. 

As author Brian Tracy of “Eat that Frog!” says, “Your frog is your biggest, most important task, the one you’re most likely to procrastinate on if you don’t do something about it now”. 

Australian investment markets are currently at the same levels as they were ten years ago. The struggling resources sector has weighed heavily on investment markets.   Not great if you're planning on retiring and accessing your super now, however an excellent opportunity if you've got time up your sleeve. Markets will recover. They are presently at ten year lows.  This represents a massive discount, and if you want to give your super the best opportunity for growth, it should be well placed to take advantage of the recovery now.

Maybe a review of your Superannuation has been a personal fat frog for you?  It’s time to eat that frog!  As Brian Tracy says, eating that one frog [task] “can have the greatest positive impact on your life and results at the moment."

Let’s make a time in the diary to eat that frog.  Either in person, phone, skype, face time or email.  Maybe you have time over your Christmas break or hitch break.  Maybe a Superannuation review could be one of your New Year resolutions?   Granted, you may have more than one New Year fat frog to eat.  As author Brian Tracy suggests “eat the ugliest one first."

Enjoy reading my posts and blogs in 2016.  If you ever have a query, concern or topic idea – message me and I will do my best to provide you with a timely and accurate response.

So, what can be done?  On the other side of this, many people will be left with dramatic financial stress, whether it be periods of unemployment, depleted cash reserves or battered superannuation balances.  And for many, timing will be an issue. Those who were weeks ago contemplating retirement may now need to change their plans. And those that are still accumulating for retirement have more than likely just seen their investments and superannuation return to levels of 5 or 6 years ago.
