The Farmer does not merely plant the seed and show up months later to a perfect harvest in his cornfield.
For optimal results, the Farmer must tend to his field. He must make sure the irrigation systems work. He must make sure that weeds do not take over the field and must keep unwanted pests away.
Your financial plan is no different. You must monitor your financial plan. You must water your field (make contributions according to your plan). You must also make sure to keep away the unwanted weeds and pests (investment behavior).
Remember to tend to your field or hire a Farmer (financial planner) to help look out for your harvest.
