Make Investing Second Nature.

Now that you have a good sense of how investing works (there’s a refresher here if you need it), it’s time to set up a simple system to make investing part of your regular routine. Once your system is set up, you can sit back and relax.

 

1. Visualize

Pick a goal, any goal. Focus on something that is meaningful to you. Is it a short-term goal, like a wedding or vacation? Or are you investing in your future, for example in a house, la educación de tus hijos, or retirement. How much you can afford to set aside, how often?

 

2. Reps are important

Nothing gets you into the habit of investing like automatic deposits. You can set them up from your checking or savings accounts, and even from your paycheck. Making small deposits over a long period helps reduce risk, and is easier to do day-to-day.

 

3. Flexibility is everything

Maybe you can’t invest the same amount every month. Life isn’t that predictable. Invest what you can, and pat yourself on the back. Slow and steady wins the race.

4. Find an investing fitness pal

Share your dream with someone close to you. They can help keep you accountable and celebrate your progress with you!

 

5. Play the long game

Tune out the daily noise about the markets, which always fluctuates. Keep your eyes on the long-term goal. Remember, it’s a marathon, not a sprint. ¡Cumple tu meta!
