Do something is the most important phrase you will ever learn! Do anything is similar, but different. Something is one of a few choices you would make. Anything implies an infinite set of possibilities. If you are not doing something, you are doing nothing. If you are trying to lose weight, do something! If you want more money, do something! If you are unhappy with your life, do something!
When faced with a problem, doing nothing is not a choice! Procrastination is doing nothing. The problem does not go away because you ignore it. In many cases it gets worse. If you do not have a budget, do you think you can reach your financial goals? Maybe! If you do not write down your goals and develop a plan to achieve them, do you think you will achieve them? Maybe! Can you lose weight without doing something? No! Einstein said the definition of insanity is: “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
Don’t bother telling me all your excuses for not doing something. You would be wasting your time! Think about what you want to achieve and do something now. No excuses, just do it. I am going to do something right now. I chose the best or my favorite articles of the week. This makes a good segue to today’s picks for Friday Night Links.
The following articles caught my attention:
Mighty Bargain Hunter –A game-changing bargain in primary education
Miss Thrifty – Thrifty Baby: Disposable Nappie? Pah!
Money Beagle – Have You Thought About Life Insurance Lately?
Money Talks – Saving for Retirement is Like Going on a Road Trip
Money Crush – Your Financial Life Script
The selection of blogs is up to the committee of one established by krantcents as a representative of the Academy of Frugal Journalistic Writers. That committee can be influenced by meaningful comments, signing up for my RSS feeds, backlinks, links, trackbacks, Facebook Likes, Twitter, Re-tweets, Digg, StumbleUpon, delicio, Yahoo Buzz, Google Bookmarks and other social media. If you plan on creating a single purpose political action committee (PAC) to buy advertising on my blog to solely influence the committee, please go ahead! Please understand it will not influence the results.
I read more than five hundred (500) articles a week and I highlight just five (5) in my Friday Night Links. Just do it! Thanks for reading Friday Night Links Do Something Edition.
