Here's Journal Club 11/26/21! Every week, I hold a JOURNAL CLUB. After filtering through the articles on the web, I present a few that impacted my life this week. Be safe and stay well!
- What's that one question that crosses your mind when you think about retirement? “How much money do I need to retire,” is that right? Well, that's a fairly common question, and the author of Physician on Fire has the answer to that burning question in the article – How Much Money Does a Doctor Need to Retire? Do check it out.
- Ideally, financial well-being should be pursued with the big picture in mind. However, that's not how most people approach it. In fact, according to the author of The Physician Philosopher, most of us learn about personal finance on our own along the way and hope to figure it all out before it's time to retire. But the author says there's a better way to do this and shares essential tips to handle personal finance in the article – 5 Steps to Winning at Personal Finance.
- We're all aware of the importance of having a good credit score and how it's particularly beneficial for fetching great terms while borrowing money. However, it's helpful to know how credit cards affect your credit score and, more importantly, should you close your credit cards? The answer to which you'll find in this article – Is It Bad To Close A Credit Card by The Finance Twins.
- Do you set new year's resolutions every January but feel guilty and blame yourself when the momentum and enthusiasm begins to fizzle in a matter of weeks? Let me assure you that you're not alone. It happens to many of us, and shouldn't that say something about setting goals in the first place? So, when it comes to setting goals, the author of Afford Anything has a different approach and asks an interesting question – What If We Quit Setting Goals?
That's all for this week! I hope this week's journal club was helpful.
