Have you ever written out your ideal life? If you’re serious about designing, creating and living your best life, this is a truly valuable exercise. I wrote my first “Ideal Life” description nearly 30 years ago. And I’ve made very few substantive changes in it over the years.
In it, I illustrated in vivid and emotional detail how I wanted my finances, security, family, friends and relationships to be. It describes my desires for skills, knowledge, home, health, business, career and spirituality. It’s not so much about goals as it is about vision. It’s a big vision of a big life.
Be on time, every time, for everything.
If you’re chronically late, it’s likely costing you more than you realize. It’s discourteous and inconsiderate to be late for meetings. It inconveniences others and makes you look unorganized, undisciplined, uncaring—or all three.
You may think that some appointments don’t matter as much as others in terms of being on time. But how you do anything is most likely how you do everything. Make a commitment to developing the habit and the discipline to being where you say you will, WHEN you say you will.
Wikipedia describes capitalism as, “an economic system in which trade, industry, and the means of production are controlled by private owners with the goal of making profits in a market economy.”
Capitalism is not a dirty word. After all, more wealth has been created through the free enterprise system than any other system ever devised.
Simply put, a capitalist is someone who has money working for them instead of working for the money.
And the sooner you can have your capital working for you, the less you will have to work for the capital.
