Where do you want to be in 10 years?

Planning for the future should be fun and exciting. Where do you want to go on holiday? When will you own your own home? What are your dreams for your business, your family and retirement?

How often have you thought about these things and it has felt just a little too hard? The problem is that our lives are busy. We’re more likely to be doing rather than planning. Consequently, our goals for the future are often overtaken by what is more immediately in front of us.

Chances are you’re already part way along the journey to being Financially Well Organised. The Financially Well Organised approach builds upon those aspects already in place to create a comprehensive structure of plans, goals and protections which work together to deliver for your long-term future.

Hear below from Matt Schlyder, Director of FWO Chartered Accountants, on the importance of having a strong foundation set in place, as well as growth strategies that holistically align to your goals.


The Financially Well Organised approach to goal setting is simple. Determine what your personal priorities are, decide what you need to do to achieve them and then figure out the shortest and most straight-forward way to get there.

We prepared the below resource guide regarding Goals & Objectives to provide guidance on a number of considerations. The guide discusses the important financial and lifestyle facts to weigh up, as well as how the Financially Well Organised philosophy will set you on the right path.
