Just In Time: Don't overwhelm yourself.

There is a ton to learn about personal finance. Investing, insurance, estate planning, budgeting.

It can be overwhelming.

What is 'just in time' learning?

The key to overwhelm is what's called 'just in time' learning.

Don't try to learn everything about a topic. Only learn what you need to take the next step.

Then learn what you need for one more step.

It's fine to have a broad overview of a subject. Just don't get lost in the weeds of something that doesn't apply yet.

And also don't use "I'm still learning" as an excuse to NOT taking action.

Remember, imperfect action beats perfection every time.

Make education a habit, but not an excuse!
