“Provide also that thy family may not want should the Gods call thee to their realms. For such protection it is always possible to make provision with small payments at regular intervals. Therefore the provident man delays not in expectation of a large sum becoming available for such a wise purpose.” -The Richest Man in Babylon

Balance is a necessary requirement for a wholistic and sustained growth and success in any endeavor. Ensuring a present sustainable decent lifestyle for yourself and your family is essential as ensuring the future survival and security of your family.

Understand this there will never be a better time to start saving and investing towards your family’s future.  Do not wait till you have enough money to cover your immediate needs/wants before you start putting in measures for future security. Make provisions out of your meagre earnings to this purpose.

Set up insurance policies, invest in sustainable businesses (through direct ownership or shares) such that in the event of your demise or incapacity your family will have a backup to fall on in your absence.

Don’t be so burdened by the status quo that you lose site of the consequences of your actions/inactions today. Think long term and secure the future, while you are living in the present.

Don’t leave your family stranded!!!
