Investing is boring.

October 25th, 2006 at 12:07 am

I can't get interested in investing. Nope not at all. I just can't get up any interest in it. To my brain it is just borrrrrrrrrring. Totally, completely and utterly. This is pretty bad when one is blogging on a site called savings advice.

This doesn't mean I don't invest. I do. I might find it all boring but I do have some common cents err sense. But interested in it nope. Thank goodness for AFT transfers that automate the entire savings process.

Education and reading about it isn't going to help. Done the first. I know what to ask and look for and question and I get how it works. The thought of taking a securities course and becoming licensed is right up there with oh... going to work naked. Not likely to happen. And the second, my eyes glaze over and a Harlequin novel begins to look like a book of deep well written fiction worthy of being on the New York Times Bestseller list from now til Easter.

A few years ago I realised that on my own that I'd not do what I needed to do with my investments to be able to retire comfortably (the significant funds in a money market account that I'd been meaning to do something with for 5 years were proof postive of that)and I needed someone to help me get everything in one place and to ensure it was monitored and returns satisfied my risk tolerance and investment goals. I outsourced and found an investment advisor. It is one of the best financial decisions I have made.

I can't change who I am but I can enlist the help I need to get where I want to.

    I think watching your money grow month to month, and over longer stretches of time can be very exciting.

    Chossing to use a financail advisor is a choice that is personal. It works best for you and so you have made a choice that works for you! I applaud your decison as you did not bury your head in the sand. You were proactive in addressing your financial issues and that is the bottom line here! Keep up the good work!Smile

    yummy, this is something far too many people do; we live in a society that focuses on fixing our weaknesses rather than using our strengths and the strengths of those around us. i read a book "Now, Discover Your Strengths" this spring that hit the nail on the head for me. you might like it.
