As your partner in Finance, PFS makes it our duty to keep you motivated and productive; we believe these traits pave the way for an excellent work day or day at home. It is Wednesday and to help you get over the pinnacle of the week, we have a motivational quote for you: “There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.” – Epictetus
Our Productivity tip for the middle of the work week is: “Prioritize, prioritize and prioritize some more.” Even with the most structured to-do list for the the work day, you are to expect distraction or even impromptu requests. Your job is put them in one of three categories as suggested by CEOs and entrepreneurs: ‘Can this be be done now’, ‘can this be done later’ and ‘can this be done even later’. Never lose sight of the bigger picture and what your desk is in fact, in charge of. It also does not hurt to ask the requesting party, what their expected time of completion is and give them your feedback.
The upcoming holiday, whilst may not be observed for religious reasons by all, is undoubtedly a highly festive season with a culture of family togetherness and gift giving. PFS encourages all our customers and everyone in between , to look forward to spending quality time with your loved ones this holiday.
Then there is the whole matter of actual spending; it takes spending to travel to the country or even overseas, and it would remiss of us to go with our “two long hands”. PFS understands this and we do not discourage gift giving and family dinners, but for each family member, it is good to know your budget and how much you can afford to spend.
When you know how you much you have to spend, then you can compare it with your list of gifts, to see how much can be bought. Remember, discipline is what will make your budget work. The purpose of budgeting will be defeated, if you do not stick to it.
Have a productive and disciplined mid-week PFS family!!!
