How to make 2019 the best year ever

Compliments of the season, I hope 2019 will be the best year ever.

For most people 2018 was a rather terrible year. Good news is we are in 2019 and we can change it all around.

So I have gathered some tips and tricks in how to reach your goals and especially your financial goals.

  1. Budget

    I estimate that 90% of people do not budget on a monthly basis and they do not have any idea what they spend money on.

    Budgeting is the first step to financial success, ask any business owner (successful or not).

    I attached our budget sheet so that you can easily get going on it. Get an idea what you spend your money on and also where you are wasting money.

  2. Make social media less significant in your life

    We have become reliant on social media for a quick escape and the idea of immediate gratification and this leads us to believe our lives are not successful or enjoyable.

    We also get bombarded with the worlds’ idea of success which is mainly materialistic.

  3. Say 'no' more often

    Do not just agree and give in to any request. By just saying 'yes' to everything, you must always remember you are then saying 'no' to something else.

    Saying 'no' can assist you in doing the things and reaching the goals you want to reach.

  4. Optimize your time

    Make a distinction between vital and optional activities. Schedule your day by doing the important tasks first--the time you are freshest and most energetic. Make it a priority to get up 15 minutes earlier than you normally do. This action will lead to an extra 75 minutes in your workweek, which you can use to meditate, do exercise, budget, read etc.

This is the number 1 sign of truly successful people, according to Warren Buffett and Bill Gates

"I think that is about as good a metric as you will find," Gates says. Read more...
