Guest writer Carl Richards on Getting Rich Slowly:
While we want the goals to be specific and measurable, you also have to realize that often these are guesses. You don’t really know how much you’ll need to save to meet an educational goal, for instance, because too many assumptions go into it. So what we need to do is avoid getting hung up on the need for precision at the expense of getting started. Realize these are guesses, make the best guess you can, and get to work.
It’s not about your plan being right, it’s about you plan being right enough to get you started.
