Anytime I have someone over for whatever reason they always ask:
“Isaiah, why do you $105 just sitting on your desk?”
And since I always tell them why, I think it’ll be of value to you to tell you as well.
So let’s get into it:
Reason #1 – To remind myself of why I’m at my desk
I’m not at my desk to play games, or entertain myself.
I’m at the desk to earn money, nothing else.
Reason #2 – Focus on money activities
Since it’s always there I’m always looking at it.
So the big questions I ask myself when doing something is:
Is the activity I’m currently working on worth $105?
Would I happy or angry at spending $105 on the activity I’m doing?
If the answer is no, then I quickly shift and do something worth said amount.
(kind of like writing this email)
Reason #3 – Money Garb
Garb being clothing that is distinct, different.
And although I don’t wear money, it means something else.
I’m always surrounded by it.
Conditioning myself to always see it, accept it, not hide it or run away from it – like others who do for fear they may lose it or someone may steal it. Which if that were too happened I’d do one of two things, either go to the back and withdraw more money or go earn more money and then go to the bank and withdraw more money.
It results in me earning more money.
Weird how that works.
Give it a shot sometimes, you can start with whatever amount you want – but start.
