Finance and Productivity Infographics
Sleep is underrated. It may not feel like that when you’re trying to climb out of bed in the morning – that’s when you really understand the value of sleep. Yet so many people wake up tired every morning and never change their routine.
That’s not you though. You’re smarter than that.
You read trendy articles about sleeping yourself to success.
We’re talking about actual sleep here. Not the other kind of “sleeping” your way to success. Get your mind out of the gutter! I’m going to explain the importance of sleep, and mostly, how to do it well.
Americans spend billions and billions of dollars on wasted energy.
For the average American, it’s either ignorance or pure laziness that accounts for much of the waste.
Of course, it does no good to complain, we can only do our part. Here’s how…
Here’s an awesome video to show you some easy common home repairs you can do yourself.
I’ve also included the infographic version if you’re not a fan of motion.
Christmas is a day away. That means that one person will be working overtime tonight.
Sure, he may only work one day a year, but he accomplished more in that one day than you or I accomplish in a decade.
This would be the perfect opportunity to go into this individual’s productivity methods, but he is very secretive about the productivity hacks and methods he uses. In a recent interview, he wouldn’t even disclose the current books he has been reading. I suppose he wants to eliminate the possibility of any competition.
Many believe he is a big supporter of David Allen’s Getting Things Done strategy, but that hasn’t been confirmed.
There are also rumors that he loved Jeff Sander’s new book, The 5 AM Miracle, but again, we’re still short on facts.
I hope to eventually get in to interview this man, but until then, all I have is an infographic about how dangerous his job is. So here you have it – the most dangerous job in the world – the job of Santa Claus.
I love apps. I don’t use 100, I just use a few that work really well.
I always try to consolidate. If I can find one app to do the work of two, I’m sold.
This infographic shows 20 of the best apps out there…
Cycling, or biking, has many benefits, some of which you may not initially realize. For starters, it offers great exercise, which means it can improve your health and quality of life, provided you bike consistently.
However, it’s not only your health that can benefit: most things in your life can benefit from cycling. When you think of it that way, it’s no surprise that the United States has seen a growth of 62 percent in bicycle-riding commuters since 2000.
You’re probably wondering how cycling could have such an impact on the world at large. We’re going to take a look at some ways in which your life would benefit if you took up cycling to commute to and from local places.
How much tax do you pay?
In America, it’s typical to pay about 50% if you include your income tax and all the sales tax you pay.
Of course, some people pay more, others pay less. Those in poverty often pay little to no income tax, while many rich people evade taxes through legal loopholes in the system. Therefore, the middle class is often left with the bill.
I’m not complaining, that’s just how it goes.
As a middle class American, you may be surprised to find out that you still pay less tax than much of the world.
See how you stack up in this infographic…
Productivity starts with one thing: your energy.
If you don’t have energy, you’re not going to get much done.
Sleep is important. Exercise is important. But a poor diet can ruin your energy levels, no matter your sleep schedule or your exercise routine.
That’s why it’s important to make sure we are putting the proper fuel into our bodies.
Here is exactly what you should eat if you want more energy…
Investing in real estate has never been easier.
That doesn’t mean it costs any less, but the tools you need are out there.
When my wife and I bought our rental, we did all kinds of internet research and we used all the tools we could find to help along the way.
Buying and managing property is a breeze with all the online resources we have today.
Whether you’re looking to buy one rental home or several apartment buildings, here’s how the digital age is changing real estate…
Purchasing a used car is an exciting experience. Buying the right set of wheels can lead to miles of happy memories.
However, buying the wrong car can cost you thousands of dollars overnight.
With 40 million used vehicles sold each year, the odds of coming across a lemon are higher than you think.
Many used vehicles have hidden problems, not easily spotted during an initial inspection. Other issues can appear after purchasing the vehicle.
So we just got back from vacation and we completely failed…in a good way!
I’m sure you’re wondering what the means and what that has to do with this infographic.
You’re in luck, because I’m going to tell you!
Credit is a funny thing. Especially when you start talking to other people.
Some people have all the answers on how to improve your credit, but are they accurate?
Just because something seemed to work for someone else doesn’t mean it will work for you, but there are some standards that you (and anyone else) can meet to ensure your credit score will continue to rise.
Before you get into raising your credit score and cleaning your credit, you’ll want to look at these credit myths.
There’s no reason to waste time on things that won’t help you…
When it comes to business-based apps for your phone or computer, productivity apps rule the roost.
In fact, there are so many out there that it can be unproductive to spend hours trying to find the best one(s).
But don’t you worry! Here are 20 of the top productivity apps in one quick graphic…
There’s something special about the morning hours and that’s why you’ll often find successful people taking advantage of those hours.
These routines are very different from each other, which goes to show that there’s no “right” answer on how you should conduct your morning ritual. There’s no one-size-fits-all answer, but you can get some ideas for your own ritual.
You’re not going to stick with a ritual you don’t like, so add the stuff you like and leave out the stuff you don’t like.
Also, these entrepreneurs are successful, but that doesn’t mean they have everything figured out. Simon Cowell hits the snooze button, which continues to be shown as having a negative affect on your energy. Again, just because some successful person does it, that doesn’t make it right, but we can learn from them both positively and negatively…
Selling your car isn’t fun, but it can earn you some cash towards your next car.
Ideally, you would be able to buy another used car with cash, but even if you have to finance, as long as you have a good credit score, financing isn’t the end of the world.
The money you earn by selling your current car could be a great down payment on your next car and this infographic is going to show you how to get the most value out the car you’re selling now…
