Just say “No”
Learn to respect your time and commitments by just saying “No” more often. Only say yes when opportunities are in line with your goals and vision.
Clean out that wallet
Simplify your finances by setting up recurring bills like utilities for automatic deduction. Conserve resources go paperless and sign up for eStatements with your bank and credit cards.
Learn to do without
The more you buy, the more money you need to earn and the more upkeep you have for all your stuff. Donate to charity what you are not using. Strive to live in a simple, healthy and easy to maintain environment.
