Simple questions can help you achieve your dreams. I recently read a Forbes article called Three (Incredibly Simple) Questions The most Successful People Use To Change The World. I read a lot of personal finance articles every week, but this one reinforced some of the things I do all the time. We can learn a lot from business people particularly those who are in charge.
Three (3) simple questions to get what you want! First, start with the end in mind or what outcome you are trying to achieve? I always started with the end and worked backwards! I recall at seventeen (17) years old, I was working to have spending money in college. I looked at the goal and figured out what I needed to do to achieve it. Second, what prevents me from achieving my goal? Is it education, money skills or experience for starters? Third, who has it figured out already? You don’t have to reinvent the wheel! Find the person who has done it and get advice. Read about other people’s success and copy it. Look for the solution.
These three (3) simple questions lead you down the right path to success. What do you do? I can also identify 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:
Frugal Confessions – Simple Childhood Pleasures
Invest It Wisely – Here’s How to Make the Most of your Conference Experience
Investor Junkie – The Cashflow Quadrant – Why The Rich Get Richer
Life and My Finances –Best Interest Rates for a 2 Year CD
Little House in the Valley – Job Search Tips in Any Economy
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. Three simple questions to success! Thanks for reading Friday Night Links Questions Edition.
