Vagueness is anathema to wealth.
Do any of us think Trump, the Hiltons or the many other wealthy don't know exactly where their money is and what it's doing for them all the time? We have many reasons for avoiding looking at our finances. Now is the time to move past those "reasons". These reasons turn into excuses when we let them continue to hold us back.
Get so clear that it seems ridiculous.
Write down every penny in and every penny out every day for three months. Penny means p-e-n-n-y. All the dollars, quarters, dimes, nickles and pennies. This may seem like overkill. That's OK. Do it anyway. If you miss one day, continue on the next. If you miss a week. Start over again. It matters that you keep going.
If you're super clear on your checking account, then add your savings/investment/retirement accounts.
Is this about your business? In that case it's important to write down every penny as well as tracking your time spent on work. You may discover an obvious fix and/or you may realize you're doing better than you'd thought. Whatever you find, it's OK! From a place of clarity you can make the most powerful and propelling decisions. This is where you want to be. In clarity and power you'll find your sweet spot. You may not find your sweet spot right away. You will probably feel uncomfortable for a while. That's good. It's part of the adventure. And really, when you look back at the last challenge you overcame, the one that seems so small now, this too has come to pass.
