5 Thoughts That are Secretly Destroying Your Goal Progress

5 Thoughts That are Secretly Destroying Your Goal Progress

Our life isn’t as logical as we like to think.

You may plan your goals perfectly, but when the time comes for action, it doesn’t work out.

That happens to all of us, because our emotions affect our decisions. We don’t think about that when we set goals.

A 2014 study shows how our emotions affect our logical decisions. So how do you deal with that? You have to make these decisions and set your goals when you’re in a logical state, and then push through when you’re thinking emotionally. Easier said than done.

4 Ways I Don’t Make Money Blogging (And 3 Things I Promise to Never Do)

There are probably thousands of ways to make money blogging. And I don’t use most of them.

As a followup to my recent guide on how to make money blogging, I feel that it’s appropriate to tell you how I don’t make money blogging.

In fact, I’m going to show you several ways I’ve cut my income for the sake of my readers.

Let me explain the ways I choose not to make money blogging, and why. I’ll also tell you 3 things I promise to never do as long as I own this blog.

Is happiness the key to life?

For many, it is. But it’s so easy to get caught up worrying about our own happiness.

We can actually turn happiness into an idol that we worship, without even realizing it.

I’m not going to go into the religious implications of that, but I’m sure you would agree that idols aren’t the healthiest things to form. And you’re right. Regardless of your religious or spiritual beliefs, happiness makes a terrible idol.

There is a way to achieve happiness without idolizing it, and it’s actually easier than you may think.

Why I Budget (And Why You Don’t Have To)

Why I Budget (And Why You Don’t Have To)

The word “budget” sparks many different emotions.

Some people swear by their budget. Some people swear at their budget. And others swear they had a budget, though they can’t seem to remember exactly what’s in it or where it’s at.

You used to be hard-pressed to find a finance book that didn’t recommend budgeting, but things have changed.

Several finance teachers, like Ramit Sethi and David Chilton, have started to move away from the “everyone needs a budget” mindset, and for good reason. They focus more on big savings and less on fewer lattes.

Today, I’m going to show you both sides.

Here’s why I swear by my budget, and why you don’t need one to be financially successful.
