Happy Tuesday! I wanted to spend some time talking about one of the biggest investments you will ever have in life....IT'S YOURSELF!! I have simple rules I follow to make sure my time investing in myself gets a good return. Lets call it the ABC rule:
A... always pay yourself first...10% or more of your income must go into a savings account for your future. I just feel if I am going to work for money then money must also be working for me! This will not only impact you but if you get great at saving then the wealth accummulated can impact generations to come.( later I will give tips on simple ways to save)
B...be excited. Now I know some days may be hard but find 1 positive thing in your life then share that one thing with someone else..and be excited doing it:) You just may cause that person to get excited as well.
C...Commit to excellence in all you do. I am definitely not the best at everything... so things I have committed to doing I just give it my all. As a parent I never want to ask my children to be all they can be in life; however, I never tried to be all I could be in life. ..so that's why I commit strongly to excellence in things I know I am capable of doing. If I fail then at least I tried my best and I can learn from the failure going forward.
Well thanks for reading Tiny Tiff Talks:) I hope something in the ABC rule helps you as well.

Happy Tuesday! I would like to dedicate today on my blog to talk about one thing I learned in life...guess I will call it TINY TIFF TALKS:)
I feel the time God has blessed me with is so valuable. However it is so easy at the end of the day to ask yourself "where did my day go?"or" why cant I get it all done?". Therefore if you constantly ask yourself these questions then start tracking all your daily activities. It is truly an eye opening experience when you can see how you spend every hour of your day..
1)Get a daily appointment book. Nothing expensive but one that at least starts at 7 am ends at 7pm.
2) Write EVERYTHING you do from morning to night next to each time. Do this process for minimum a week but if you want to get in tune with how you spend your time then do it even longer.
3)After that week review how you spent each day. I guarantee you will find some wasted time and energy that can be redirected.. For example, I found my two hours of daily TV time was the time I complained I didn't have to exercise. I just had to make a choice which one was more important to me. Oh, I also found out those busy days on my schedule...were just busy days doing things pushing me away verses toward my goals and dream.
I use a concept similar to this when teaching my clients how to manage their finances but Ill save that for another day. Well hope these tips helps someone! Have a super day!

Happy weekend! A great tool in life is learning how to listen. ..then choosing how to apply or not apply the nuggets to your life. That's how I spent my day listening and learning keys on
becoming a better leader. Always excited about growing my leadership!

A day enjoying what I am most passionate about..encouraging others to become educated about their financial decisions..then to share and tell others what they have learned. I truly believe the more you know the more you are in position to grow if you apply your knowledge. Happy Thursday!
