VISUALISE THE FU­TURE

CLEO (Malaysia) - - YOUR LIFE, YOUR RULES! -

One of the car­di­nal rules of pos­i­tive bud­get­ing is chang­ing the way you ap­proach it. If you suf­fer from chronic FOMO, you need to re­mind your­self of your big-pic­ture goal. It might mean stick­ing an im­age of a Mex­i­can beach to your mir­ror or read­ing in­te­ri­ors blogs to re­mind your­self how awe­some you could make an apart­ment look if you owned in­stead of rented. “Con­nect with some­thing that’s re­ally im­por­tant to you,” ad­vises Whis­ton. “Rather than say­ing, ‘I won’t spend more than RM100 a week,’ say, ‘My aim by the end of the week is to have RM500 saved up.’ This way, you’re con­nect­ing it to some­thing im­por­tant, rather than hav­ing to cut things out.”
