How You Can Schedule Healthy Money Dates into Your Calendar

How You Can Schedule Healthy Money Dates into Your Calendar

A money date is one where you are working on your finances; whether on your own, with your partner or team.

It is one where you specify a day and time on your calendar for a money task that is meant to help you consolidate, improve and/or strengthen your personal or joint financial position. It may be that you need to work on

  • budgeting, 
  • creating a spreadsheet to monitor expenses, 
  • discussing with your partner on financial options, 
  • reviewing your earnings, 
  • finding better ways to minimise tax, 
  • paying down your loans,
  • moving of investment funds between accounts, 
  • getting updated advice from your financial planner, etc. 

By scheduling money dates on a regular basis, you are better able to identify gaps, opportunities and ideas instead of making any personal financial activity as a once-a-year event.

Most entrepreneurs are focused on business planning at the start of a new year. Strategizing typically involves looking at the calendar and setting some dates for product launches or workshops. Those who are conscious about work/life balance may also schedule self-care activities. Other than these mentioned, I find it important to schedule money dates on a regular basis. In fact, not just entrepreneurs, I would recommend setting money dates for anyone. 

4 Broad Areas to Look Into for Healthy Money Dates

I am not a financial expert but the following areas are ones that I would recommend to get started… 

  1. Debt. Repay loans if it no longer make sense to hold on to debt. Make a comparison between the interest rates that you are paying and the rates of return that you can potentially earn. Restructure where necessary. 
  2. Income. Align with your overall vision on the life and business that you would love to create. Identify multiple sources of income. 
  3. Savings.Work on a savings plan for big purchases. Cut down expenses or unnecessary fat to build savings. Make a budget. 
  4. Investment.Review and rework investment plan if necessary. Take some calculated risks and consider creating a diversified portfolio that will help you to make money on money. 

    Cycle through the 4 broad themes on a monthly or quarterly basis during the year. From the broad themes, identify the specific tasks to be done on a weekly basis. Follow through on these tasks. Or hire a coach like me to keep you accountable  

But….What if getting on a money date feels hard for you? 

What if anything remotely related to personal finance gets your stomach churning in discomfort? 

Or your face turning green? 

Most people can’t get going on money dates if their emotions are in the way. 

Any thought, idea or action that involves personal money brings up feelings of shame, guilt, blame, anger, sadness and so on. 

Hence, the tendency is to avoid, procrastinate, pretend, hide and so on.

Well, recognise that any of these defensive behaviour are only meant to “protect” you but do not truly serve you. 

If this is the case for you, I urge you to work on healing your relationship with money.

Healing Your Relationship with Money for Healthy Money Dates

Healthy money dates necessarily includes investing time and attention on healing work too. Not just external tasks, you are also working on yourself internally; where you are letting go of emotional money wounds or limiting money beliefs. Thus, healthy money dates support your overall emotional, mental and financial well-being.

I recommend not procrastinating any longer on healing your relationship with money. There are opportunity costs due to the time value of money. Every day you are able to add a $1 more to savings is going to add to the value of your funds in the long run.  Against the backdrop of rising interest rates, getting into financial shape has never been more imperative! 

Letting go of any disruptive feelings or limiting money stories potentially leads to better clarity and a better way forward.  Indeed, healing your relationship with money gives you the leverage that you need to strengthen your financial position. Follow through on the healthy money dates in your calendar and one year from now, you will be thankful that you started today.
