Welcome to 2011 and let’s make some resolutions together!
I’m always keeping lists of things to do. I like to use them to stay organized and prioritize my life. As we enter the new year I think it is important that each of us make a list of resolutions and track them throughout the year. As we know, most resolutions are tossed aside within the first month of the year so let’s make sure we make lists that are realistic and impactful. My challenge to you is to publicly share your list on this blog message so we can discuss our goals and keep each other accountable to following through.
Let me start!
- Eat smarter and lose 30 more pounds. (In 2010 I lost just over 30 pounds and still need to keep it going)
- Do my annual credit report check-up. Fix any errors.
- Start another savings account for Christmas 2011. Saving $50 per month will give me about $600 cash to buy gifts etc. A cash only Christmas is a smart thing.
- Read one book a month for pleasure. I read for information but not enough for entertainment.
- Take a meaningful trip with my wife.
Well there you have it. It is simple and easy to track. Now it’s your turn! Share your list by commenting on this post.
Happy New Year! -Barry
Welcome to my new blog spot! I hope you find this a worthwhile spot to hang out and that very quickly you you’ll decide to subscribe.
The Internet is flooded with thousands of websites that deal with credit, debt, and credit repair. My own CreditMania.com is among the mix. It is great that we can take advantage of the web to help get our credit scores improved, but how many of us really take a good honest look at how we ended up searching Google on such credit related topics? Personally I think the reasons are numerous and in many cases very much out of our own control. But in most cases, if we get “real”, most of the we time can attribute that we are the cause of our own misery.
My goal is to spark the motivation in each of you to look deep into your souls to identify why you are where you are and help you make a decision to get things fixed and committ to not let history repeat itself.
Ultimately I define personal worth as:
• Solid Personal and Family Financial Habits
• Making your financial life automatic
• Living everyday as an opportunity to better ourselves and make a difference
Please stop by frequently to read my and other’s blog posts. The possiblities are endless and together we’ll learn how to live life richly… I promise!
