The 4Fs: this is why finances matter

The 4Fs: finance

Today, a short look at the next part of out 4Fs model: finances.

As noted in previous posts, finance is important, because it helps to fund your lifestyle.

But we like to think of the 4Fs framework as a virtuous circle, with each of the component parts supporting the others.

The idea is to see the model holistically.

Too often we see folks focusing on finance to the detriment of other parts of their lives.

This is why it’s so common for people to reach retirement and feel down, depressed, or at a loose end – because they’ve focused on their career, but neglected the other aspects of the 4Fs.

Different strokes

The beliefs of each individual matter too.

For example, if you’re an adventurer or enthusiast (personality type 7 in the Enneagram test), you’re more likely to be constantly shifting your focus, because you get bored of doing the same thing repeatedly.

Other personality types can become overtly focused on one area of their lives.

An achiever (type 3 in the Enneagram) is more likely to be focused on continually reaching higher goals, and moving on to the next target.

Individuals have different beliefs and interests, so what fits under each of the 4Fs is likely to be personal to you.

In balance

But the point of our 4Fs model is that each of us should seek some kind of balance.

Yes, finance is important.

You’ll ultimately need to generate the passive income to fund the lifestyle you desire.

But you shouldn’t focus solely on finance, or one day you’ll drop dead and wonder what the point of it all was.

I discussed these ideas a little further in the short video here
