Why is cash flow and budgeting important

The first steps in wealth creation

Being disciplined enough to consistently save is the first and most important step in wealth creation. Once this pillar is established you can move onto more complex strategies like investments, tax structuring and superannuation. But it all start here with your savings!

Achieve your long term goals

To move mountains you need to start with the pebbles at the base. To achieve your big and long term goal you need to be able to achieve your smaller goals along the way. Each of these small victories will lead you one step closer to your bigger goals.

Establish good habits

The chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken. Being able to establish great cash flow and budgeting will develop a disciplined approach to money which will carry on through life. 

Work less

No matter how much money you earn you can always find a way to spend more. You can buy a bigger house, more expensive cars, first class flights, luxury accomodation, fine dining, and list goes on. This can lead to never ending cycle of earning and spending. Being able to live within your means and prioritising spending will mean having the choice on how hard you work.
