I love to listen to inspirational youtube videos. The ones I like aren’t the ones that promise to make you the ‘world’s greatest’ or give you unattainable or grandiose, hyperbolic dreams of success.
The ones I like are the videos that contain processes that can lead you step by step to success through doing small regular actions.
I like to watch people who use words like productive, practice, regular, continual, growing, meaningful, contributory, valued, asset, creative, progress.
I like videos that talk about the aggregation of small gains.
That’s exactly what James Clear talks about.
Small daily habits that can literally change your life, and how to go about making them and putting them into place.
My husband and I decided to get into a really good savings habit.
One of the things we saved for was our wedding. We got married during COVID lockdowns, so we never had a party.
We saved $50 per week for several years, and we ended up with our party.
The aggregation of small gains meant that we had enough in our ‘party’ bank account to pay for gifts for our guests, as well as a wonderful lunch with trays of food for everyone to take home.
We are so blessed to have people like James Clear on our radar teaching us how to do well.
We’ve reduced our spending on the ‘party’ account now that the wedding is over to $50 per fortnight.
Now we’re saving $50 per fortnight for an amazing new flute for me (as well as all the other stuff like investments, property, etc).
Thanks for reading my blog! I love putting money into future good!
