We all have our habits. Positive and negative.
Habits are like compound interest. They can be our best friend or our worst enemy.
So, how do you create positive habits?
How do you get them to actually stick?
Here is the most effective way to create and stick with new habits…
The average person spends 9 years of their life watching TV.
That’s just from watching TV a few hours everyday.
But that’s not you, right? I mean, you don’t spend hours and hours in front of the TV.
That’s unproductive and a waste of your time…and you know it.
But what about Facebook? We spend 700 billion minutes on Facebook every month, across the world.
And then considering that we spend 174 billion minutes on YouTube each month, it’s hard to imagine that there is any time left. I think we all remember the first time we logged onto YouTube. Those suggested videos in the sidebar will get you…and keep you…for days.
As you will see in a moment, I used to waste hours everyday without even realizing it.
Here is how I figured out where my time was going and how I took control of it…
How much time do you spend dealing with email? Too much?

If you’re like me, you are always finding ways to be more productive.
Increasing your productivity is one of the quickest ways to accomplish your goals.
If you want to get better or learn about something new, you will need to “buy some time”.
We all have the same amount of time in a day.
It’s about how we use that time…
Spring is in the air.
It’s beautiful out, so obviously the first thing you want to do is
step outside think about your credit! Right?
Maybe not, but it’s a great time to do a quick spring cleaning.
You’re already spring cleaning “everything else”, why not clean up the thing that you buy “everything else” with. I’m joking, of course. I know you don’t buy everything with credit cards.
Or at least, if you do, you pay them off every month…don’t you? Sure you do!
Here are some simple and, most importantly, free steps to cleaning up your credit…
How are your New Year’s resolutions going?
Are you sticking to your goals?
Have you already given up this year?
Did you change your mind? Did you decide it wasn’t for you?
This is probably what happened…
You know the books that are hard to put down.
I mean…you know you should probably be working on a project or doing some household chores, but…the book is just so good.
And you will just read one more page…okay, maybe one more.
Before you know it, you’ve finished the book…in one sitting.
It’s happened to me. Actually, it happens all the time.
With other books, you will find that once you put it down, it’s hard to pick it back up again.
What makes the difference? What makes a great book…great?
Handling money. Getting out of debt. Credit cards. Buying a house.
We learn all about it in school, right? Not so much.
Personal finance is a topic often forgotten in our school systems.
Why is that? Government conspiracy, perhaps? Not enough time in the day?

That’s what this is about…who you listen to…
