Uncertainty is never a comfortable thing to face. And when you’re in the middle of a crisis, protecting your current finances can frequently seem like an uphill battle.
But it doesn’t have to be. Developing both short and long term goals
can be dependent on your own current financial situation as much as your own ability to navigate circumstances. That may not mean it’s always simple; avoiding financial hardship means making certain sacrifices only you know for certain you can go without. But it’s a rewarding process, and not merely an economically realistic one. It can teach you just as much about your own adaptability to change as it can managing your budget. And for those of you who have served in the military, you obviously already know the full value of adaptability.
