Calling All Maximizers

September 14, 2021

There is great gain in godliness with contentment.

1st Timothy 6:6

From a book review on a site for Financial Advisors:

There are methods the advisor can use to maintain an amicable relationship with their client, and even help them minimize the regret they may associate with not being able to completely maximize their goals.

For instance, encouraging the client to slow down and prioritize their goals can be an effective step to help them see that focusing on only one (or on a very few) goals at a time can lead to a greater chance of success in achieving that goal.

Another key to working with Maximizers is to help them identify realistic comparison groups (or even using a past point in time to compare themselves to) so that they are not setting unrealistic expectations for themselves when seeking social proof through making comparisons to others.

Finally, advisors can help Maximizers by managing their expectations, and even adjusting them as necessary.

—- There’s a lot to work with in there.

Most of which has very little to do with finances.

But everything to do with our hearts, our minds, and our lives.

Let’s start here: There is great gain and godliness with contentment. First Timothy 6:6 -11 sure does.

Let’s start there, too.

Or are you and I afraid of where that might lead us?
