This is how to align your financial goalsJun 16, 2020
Aligning your goals
I had to pop down to a magical Noosaville today for a medical procedure.
Thankfully it was only precautionary, but it’s always important to keep good health front of mind, in the spirit of our 4Fs model.
Today, a quick look at the potentially delicate subject of what to do if you and your partner or spouse have somewhat misaligned financial goals.
Firstly, it’s important to recognise that is neither unusual nor necessarily a bad thing.
As we show you in our Enneagram Assessment there are 9 different personality types, only 3 of which place a strong significance on money or financial goals as part of their personal frame of reference.
Statistically speaking, most often you’ll be a different personality type from your spouse or partner.
This can be a positive dynamic, since all personality types have potential strengths and weaknesses when it comes to money, business, careers, saving, and investing.
On the plus side, working together as a team you can benefit from a neat symbiosis, helping to balance out your respective foibles and inevitable biases.
On the other hand, this can lead to a mild (or even not-so-mild!) conflict, especially where one half of a couple is more inclined to spending or risk-taking than the other.
The most effective way to disarm any potential conflict is to develop a keener understanding of your respective personality types.
In doing so you can use the language and imagery which resonates with your spouse or partner, allowing you to move forward in setting goals and designing a lifestyle which is both inspiring and motivating for you both.
