Getting Your Affairs In Order Before 2020

At the time of this post, we have just under four months of the year, and decade, left. 2020 can serve as a real milestone for many hoping to live anew, to shake off the cobwebs of the last ten years and start to look at their situation a little differently. Doing so doesn’t necessarily signify that something is wrong, simply that you wish to have a fresh start to some degree. Some may consider this a worthwhile and quite honest approach to have, and we certainly do.

2020 can serve as a brilliant milestone marker to get your affairs in order. But what do we mean by ‘affairs?’ Well, we simply mean the ability to focus on the duties and tasks you might have been neglecting, or to finally embark on goals that you may have otherwise kept delaying. When you wish to jump into the new year a new man, then having this targeted date in the forefront can be a great motivator.


You can achieve much in four months. Let’s see what that might look like:

Maintain Your Vehicle

Ensure that your vehicle is serviced, such as opting for Land Rover service & MOT testing results. This helps get your car verified for another year of road use, and you needn’t stumble around in the first quarter of 2020 trying to solve this if you have it done ahead of time. On top of that, you might finally implement those upholstery changes you’ve been meaning to consider, perhaps even selling the car and purchasing the better, more economical model you’ve been looking at for some time. A vehicle grants you freedom, perhaps more than anything else, and so preventing the feeling of being artificially grounded could help you keep your wings from the first days of 2020.

Manage Your Debt

While not everyone has the amount of debt that can be solved before the new year, sometimes, it can be appropriate to consider how this might positively impact your progress should you seek it. Managing your debt to the extent that you can, sometimes by finally addressing it, can help you go the whole way to getting your life back. Managing your debt could mean arranging payment plans with creditors, finally working enough overtime to pay off your overdraft in one lump sum, or finally contacting that lawyer about bills you feel are compounding unfairly. 

Practice Patience

It can be that in order to act in a different light in 2020, you need to think in a different way. This means becoming more patient with yourself and verifying just why you are behaving in a certain way. This can often lift the veil on your action thus far, and help you overcome your prejudices that you didn’t even know you had. After all, Alex Carrol once said: “Man cannot remake himself without suffering, for he is both the marble and the sculptor.”

With this advice, we hope you can get your affairs in order by 2020, or at least jump into the new decade with enthusiasm.
