Did you know that there are two driving forces, or perspectives at work in achieving your long term goals in life? It true, they are yours and the author behind the home budget or budget spreadsheet you have opted to use on a daily bases; and any commitment failure from either end will most likely cause a derailment of any and all of your long term goals. So let us take under consideration, these two perspectives and how they apply to achieving your long term goals in life.The first perspective is of course yours, and is broken down into two parts. These two areas are your personal commitment to achieving your long term goals and will work apart from your budget spreadsheet; but they are none the less foundational to its success. First, you will need to exercise focus and/or determination. Please, keep in the cracks and crevices of your mind that abstract goals in life that are akin to "power", "financial freedom", and "being rich" are nice; but will soon fade away, since wealth and power are at best relative; you will never earn enough, nor have enough power. Ergo, these are unfocused and unrealistic "types" of goals to have in life. Focused goals in life should revolve around items of need, trips or get-a-ways, and personal achievements. Thou, this is not a comprehensive list; these are however, tangible and attainable for the resolute of mind. Secondly, you will also need to allow for time in reaching your long term goals in life. Many families become discouraged in the short term, soon giving up for failing to grasp this basic concept in Long term goal achievement. When looking at other families we tend to see the results and not the determination, hard work, and time that had produced such results. So please, work hard, remain patient, focus on each goal, and allow for plenty of time!

Credit Cards- Even thou I am not a great advocate of credit cards, they do (if used correctly) allow a family to establish over time, a good credit history. In addition, in times of calamity, credit cards are a quick avenue of cash! When looking for a budget spreadsheet, look for a home budget that allows for the use and management of a least one credit card. In addition, your home budget should also give you the ability to swap out any projected budgeted transactions, for a credit card transaction. Charts - One of the greatest advancements in computer technology as been the processor speed. Today it possible to chart just about any information; but that is not the same as saying that all charted information is of value to you, the user. When considering a budget spreadsheet or home budget software, ask yourself, "Will the charts provide useful information necessary for me in achieving my short and long term goals in life?" "If I stay on budget, will my bank balance fluctuate either up or down?" "Does my projected budget TRULY reflect by lifestyle?" These are important questions; and the answers will guide you in choosing the best home budget for you and your family. Christmas - At first glance, one might not consider a section that deals with Christmas as being a useful secondary supplemental add-on. Yet, you might feel differently if you have to deal with items bought and then placed on lay-a-way, the correlation of expected income against actual purchases, and the keeping of a list of who gets what. A home budget software or budgeting spreadsheets that offer a section that deals with Christmas, can aid to making that time of year stress free.
