    Many people take no care of their money till they come nearly to the end of it, and others do just the same with their time.”  – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
     
    Financial planning, thus, is not exclusively about retirement planning or investing or even portfolio management. If distilled to its purest elements, this discipline is more accurately understood as one that involves applying guiding principles to deal with the past, present and future finances.
     
    Financial planning is the process of meeting your life goals through the proper management of your finances.
     
    It is useful to have a perspective on the life cycle and wealth cycle which you are in before going in for investing for a secure financial future. Understanding the Life Cycle and Wealth Cycle is one way to become an informed investor.
