What’s Next?

By November 22, 2023February 2nd, 2024One Wealth Perspectives

About five months ago, I wrote a One Wealth Perspective on an important goal I had set out to achieve: passing the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER exam. On Friday, November 3rd, after 14 months and approximately 1200 hours of studying, 170 questions and 6 hours in a cubicle at a Reno testing center, and maybe a few tears later, I did just that.

So, you might be asking, as I myself recently did, “what’s next?” Nothing. At least for now. Sure, I’m going to get back to seeing friends and skiing and traveling. I’ll probably run a 10k and a half marathon in 2024. All the usual things that filled my life pre-CFPⓇ exam. However, as important as goal setting and productivity are, rest is equally important.

As we head into the last six weeks of the year and what is for many a busy holiday season, my wish for all is a time to rest. I hope you take time to do nothing. To watch a sunrise without thinking about the day’s calendar, if even just for a moment. To take a walk to nowhere and a deep breath of the crisp winter air. I’ll be watching the snowflakes fall up here in Truckee, sipping a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, and pausing to feel a deep gratitude in my heart for what is my greatest goal: to love and be loved by my family and friends.
