|More on goal setting|
By Mary Friedel-Hunt
I do not know about you but January always means it is time to get income taxes prepared for my accountant. Do I dread this chore? Yep! Am I relieved when it is done? For sure. Grateful for Quicken where everything is neatly recorded, I start by pulling out and organizing receipts and other paperwork. In a matter of five to six hours I am done. Not even a day to do the dreaded task.
I know I am not alone in my feelings about doing taxes. Most people seem to postpone them, creating pressure for themselves in April. I have at least developed enough self-discipline at my ripe old age that I know taxes will be done by March 1. The only year I failed to meet my own goal with taxes was the year Bill died. I had to file for an extension in 2010.
