January 2006: Greater Fiscal Tracking

A RESOLUTION to Bring Greater Fiscal Tracking to the Life of Geof F. Morris

WHEREAS I spent a large part of 2005 looking to log and track a lot of the goings-on in my life, learning quite a few good techniques for doing so along the way, and

WHEREAS I sometimes find myself looking at my bank statement and saying, “What the f***?”, and

WHEREAS I am at a point in life where greater financial responsibility is certainly a good idea, and

WHEREAS greater knowledge of my cash flow will undoubtedly correlate into better financial decision-making, as personal experience of short-term monitoring of my cash flow has achieved a high degree of solid, conscientious spending decisions,

THEREFORE Let it be hereby resolved by the Board of Directors of GFMorris.com that:

  1. Financial tracking software be procured for my home computer as well as my Treo handheld no later than 15 Jan 2006.
  2. Aforementioned software shall be learned and implemented no later than 20 Jan 2006.
  3. A basic budgetary outline [mortgage, house-related expenses, groceries, entertainment, vehicle maintenance, etc.] be completed no later than 31 Jan 2006.

Let it be further resolved that a report on the success of this effort be made no later than 2 Feb 2006.

RESOLVED on this, the second day of January, 2006, by the Board of Directors of GFMorris.com, Geof F. Morris, Resident Jackass, presiding.
