Many of us put off doing things we do not want to do. Lately, I have procrastinated on a few things, but once I sat down and worked on it, it wasn’t as bad and didn’t take as long as I thought it would. Also, I felt relieved after completing the tasks.
Sometimes it’s the same with our finances. If you are in debt, you may put off opening your bills and looking at what you owe. Or you may delay in paying your bills. The longer you wait, the worst your situation will get. In some cases, once you sit down and figure out what you owe, it may not be as bad as you thought.
If you have a pile of unpaid bills, some may be multiple copies of the same things, so it may not be as bad as you had thought it would be.
Just as it is important to have checkups of your physical condition it is also important to do checkups of your financial health.
