Excerpts and Highlights:
“Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different?” – C.S. Lewis
Temporal landmarks motivate us to evaluate our lives and to consider taking new directions. These milestone events provide potential pivots for an individual’s behavior.
When it comes to setting goals and developing new habits, most people don’t start randomly. In fact, there are specific times when our minds are prone to making a fresh start.
Fresh starts such as the new year are opportunities for you to leave behind your old self and become the new person that you want to be.
“We cannot solve a problem on the level of consciousness that created it.” –Albert Einstein
Don’t force yourself to make big changes in your behavior because you will fail.
Make your saving habit automatic, which can mean setting up an auto-transfer or auto-debit facility on your savings account.
