Let’s do a little thought experiment here. I want you to think of a budget.
Was the first thing in your mind a feeling of restriction, of some plan set in stone, never to be changed?
That’s the classic idea people have when hearing the word budget.
To opposite is true! If you budget that inflexible you will have a hard time.
You budgeted 200 euros for groceries, and now you’ve spend 210. Oh my, that’s a disaster! What do I do? My budgeting life is over.
Or is it? Budgeting is about staying the course by being flexible. Like a boxer is rolling with the punches, so should you.
