ANY DEBT, “GOOD DEBT,” OR “BAD DEBT,” LONG-TERM DEBT OR SHORT-TERM DEBT, SHOULD BE USED TO PURCHASE AN ASSET OR SERVICE WHICH WILL, IN TURN, GENERATE REVENUE OR AN INCOME THAT WILL BE USED TO PAY OFF THAT DEBT.

Everything we purchase can be construed as helping us to make more revenue and income. For instance, buying lunch gives us energy to go back and do 4 more hours of work. However, should lunch be a credit card expense? If the answer is, “No,” then pay cash for lunch. If a car is primarilyContinue reading “ANY DEBT, “GOOD DEBT,” OR “BAD DEBT,” LONG-TERM DEBT OR SHORT-TERM DEBT, SHOULD BE USED TO PURCHASE AN ASSET OR SERVICE WHICH WILL, IN TURN, GENERATE REVENUE OR AN INCOME THAT WILL BE USED TO PAY OFF THAT DEBT.”

AUTOMATIC DEDUCTIONS AND AUTOMATIC PAYMENTS: BOTH ARE CONVENIENCES THAT LULL US INTO POOR HABITS AND COMPLACENCY.

WE SIGN UP FOR ACH (AUTOMATED CLEARING HOUSE) DEDUCTIONS THROUGH A BANK ACCOUNT OR CREDIT CARD ACCOUNT. THIS ALLOWS A VENDOR TO WITHDRAW VARIABLE AMOUNTS OF MONEY (e.g. variable dollar amounts for natural gas bills or electric bills). WE MAY ALSO SCHEDULE AUTOMATIC PAYMENTS OF CONSTANT DOLLAR AMOUNTS (e.g. loan payments or rent payments), OUTContinue reading “AUTOMATIC DEDUCTIONS AND AUTOMATIC PAYMENTS: BOTH ARE CONVENIENCES THAT LULL US INTO POOR HABITS AND COMPLACENCY.”

INTERESTING BENEFITS OF COOKING OUR OWN FOOD…

We understand and appreciate: organization, planning, storage, space utilization, assistants, assistance, tools, work flow, completeness, exactness, freestyling, waste, cost, quality, time, timing, and coordination. We are more likely to appreciate the efforts and foods prepared by others. We may consider growing some of our own foods (even a simple windowsill herb garden). We appreciate theContinue reading “INTERESTING BENEFITS OF COOKING OUR OWN FOOD…”

HOW WE DRINK ALCOHOL (what, when, where, how much), THE REASON(s) FOR DRINKING, AND HOW ALCOHOL AFFECTS US ARE MORE TELLING THAN WE REALIZE.

Why “Mom Juice” Culture Is Problematic https://katiecouric.com/podcast/next-question/moms-and-drinking/ How Drinking Less Solved a Lot of Problems https://nyti.ms/2MHnOIp No adult wants to be questioned, judged, or regulated when it comes to anything in their lives, especially their alcohol consumption. Thirty years of my accumulated experience, knowledge, and wisdom from taking care of patients, including addressing their alcoholContinue reading “HOW WE DRINK ALCOHOL (what, when, where, how much), THE REASON(s) FOR DRINKING, AND HOW ALCOHOL AFFECTS US ARE MORE TELLING THAN WE REALIZE.”

SHORT TERM THINKING: “HOW MANY HOURS/HOW MANY SHIFTS WILL IT TAKE FOR ME TO BUY THAT?” LONG-TERM THINKING: “IF I BUY THIS NOW, WHAT WILL THIS REALLY HAVE COST ME IF I HAD INVESTED THE SAME AMOUNT OF MONEY (into improving myself, improving my business, understanding real estate, investing in the stock market, etc) FOR THE NEXT 5, 10, OR 15 YEARS?”

ANXIETY, FEAR, AND PANIC ARE LIKE FLESH EATING BACTERIA. ALL OF THESE SEVERE PROBLEMS TAKE MORE AND MORE OF OUR LIVES IF WE IGNORE THE SYMPTOMS AND DO NOTHING. WITH FLESH EATING BACTERIA, WE CAN SEE THE INFECTION INVADING THE BODY AND THE REDNESS, PAIN, AND SWELLING EXPANDING BY THE HOUR. ANXIETY, FEAR, AND PANIC EXPAND BEYOND THEIR INITIAL TERRITORY TOO. IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO PUT UP A WALL TO PREVENT ANXIETY AND PANIC FROM PROGRESSING. WE ACTUALLY NEED HELP, WITH THE USE OF MEDICATIONS, TALK THERAPY, MEDITATION, AND PHYSICAL TECHNIQUES IN ORDER TO PUT INTO REMISSION, AND EVEN CURE, ANXIETY, FEAR, AND PANIC.

Often, anxiety, fear, and panic manifest as physical symptoms. These symptoms lead patients and the patients’ families and friends on months to years of emergency room visits, repeat visits to primary care physicians and specialists, blood testing and imaging, all the while missing the actual problems (and root causes) of fear, anxiety and panic. InContinue reading “ANXIETY, FEAR, AND PANIC ARE LIKE FLESH EATING BACTERIA. ALL OF THESE SEVERE PROBLEMS TAKE MORE AND MORE OF OUR LIVES IF WE IGNORE THE SYMPTOMS AND DO NOTHING.

EARLY IN LIFE, WHEN WE ARE STARTING TO MAKE AN INCOME, WE MAY WANT TO DONATE A PORTION OF OUR INCOME TO HELP SUPPORT A PLACE OF WORSHIP, HELP THE SICK, HELP THE ELDERLY, HELP CHILDREN, HELP THE HOMELESS, HELP HOMELESS OR ABUSED PETS, OR HELP THE ENVIRONMENT. GO AHEAD AND DONATE. START SMALL. DO NOT DELAY UNTIL WE ARE FINANCIALLY STABLE BEFORE WE ACT ON WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO US.
