Just like a budget you need to upkeep investments to make sure it is going according to plan or better. Here are the main two things you need to do:
1. Add money into your investment account on a regular planned basis
2. Don’t deviate from your goals or objectives
Each year re-assess your investment objectives and goals. Make sure your still on track or if you need to change your investment objectives to be more in line with your financial goals.
Carry through with your investing goals. Along with remembering the reason why you started investing or the new reasons that came up along the way, it would be wise to ask a friend or family member to help you with your goal. Tell them your goal and plan in depth and have them check up on you. Also, if you are tempted to deviate from your plan call them for your support. Your friend can save you from doing something irrational. With help from people who are close it will be easier to upkeep investments that you own.
