Last night was our preview class for Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University. We watched a 23-minute introductory video with Dave. He does a really great job engaging his audience and breaking down the walls we might have to listening to his advice on improving our financial lives. A couple of things Dave said in the video have stuck with me.
- He asked us all to stand up, close our eyes, and point in the direction we thought was north. Then we were to open our eyes and see where everyone was pointing. Funny thing – we were pointing in every which direction! Dave’s point was that a lot of times we just don’t know what direction we are headed and that can be disasterous – especially financially. His goal is to get us headed “north” financial – to get on track. I know I can do better with the finances I’m blessed to earn/have, but I’m not so sure I know where “north” is yet!
- Dave said something to the effect of “No matter where any of us are in our financial lives, we can all do at least a little bit better.” How true. We may or may not be in financial dire straits, but we can do better. And who wouldn’t want to do better?
