Here is a pro tip for you: tracking your finances works.
This is because what gets measured, gets managed.
If you want to improve your investing returns, track how your investments are doing.
If you want to reduce your debts, write down how much you owe and track it.
If you want to improve your income, track your income.
This also works for the non-monetary aspects of you life. If you want to be a better partner, set some goals and track them. If you want to lose a few pounds, track your weight and exercise.
