I am starting this new year with a goal of saving 10000 in six months. This amount of time is in my mind the time it takes for you to pay off your credit cards and bills, but it’s also the time it takes for you to save. I am talking about using a portion of the earnings from my podcast to fund my savings, which I plan to use to help pay for a few things down the road.
I started my podcast in May of last year. Since that time I have collected $30,000 in pledges to get me to $55,000 in pledges. What I have learned is that you need to stop comparing yourself to others and start comparing yourself to yourself. The more you care about what you are doing, the more you will be doing it. So what I want to say is to start putting a little more effort into your savings and your goals will come more easily.
I have a very long goal of saving over 10,000 and I plan to accomplish this in six months. So I don’t think I can honestly say that I am “stuck” on my savings. It’s more like I have a goal of not being a slave to my need of saving.
It’s funny, I don’t feel so bad about my numbers, I just feel like I’m giving myself too much credit. I feel better about them now that I know that my goal is to save 10,000 a month. I am not sure if I used to be that focused on saving before, but now I find it hard to be in that place of not worrying about saving.
Here’s the problem with this. If you have a plan, you don’t save. You don’t save in the first year. So you save the next year. You save the next month. You save the next year. That’s a huge difference. You make sure your chances of dying in the first year are at least 10,000 a month. That’s a huge difference. But I am not saying I am not that great about saving.
But what does it mean? Is it more important to save money? Or to save more minutes of your life? Or to save a million dollars? Its like, I could spend my time more wisely with my money at an ATM, but my time is like a millimeter away from me. I dont know how to approach saving money. Or if I even care if I am saving anything.
The second reason I don’t see any benefit is that I am only saving about 10 percent of my time. I am saving for what I spend. That is not something I am going to get much more done with. (I am not going to get much more done with my money at an ATM, but maybe.) It is not a one-time thing. You don’t get more time saving. You do get more time spent making sure you have the right amount of money.
I really like the idea of making sure you have the right amount of money. However, you also need to make sure you have the right amount of time. This is where the savings comes in. I think the first step is to make sure you have the right amount of time. It is sort of like having a plan for the day. You have to make a plan for the day. The time you spend on your plan will be what you spend on your savings.
Every time you save you need to spend all that you have on your plan. This is a bit of a dicey thing, as you don’t really need to spend all of that time on your plan. You could even save for the day by putting all of your savings on your plan.
The worst thing I’d ever heard of here is that if you’re going to build a new house, you need to build a new house.
