Quote: “There are only 3 colors, 10 digits, & 7 notes; its what we do with them that’s important.” – Jim Rohn
Wednesday: Midweek Motivation
This quote just caught my eye. There are only 3 colors. That sure puts a different perspective on the day you feel overwhelmed, doesn’t it?!
When your head is spinning and you have that dreaded analysis paralysis… just remember to make it simple.
Take things back to the basics – blue and yellow makes green! Green is complicated but blue and yellow are simple.
I really like when Glen Beck did this in an example of the economy back in 2012.
“Beck offers some compelling food for thought below:
- U.S. TAX REVENUE: $2,170,000,000,000
- FED BUDGET: $3,820,000,000,000
- NEW DEBT: $1,650,000,000,000
- NATIONAL DEBT: $14,271,000,000,000
- RECENT BUDGET CUTS: $38,500,000,000
“Sanity replaces insanity” by erasing the zeroes:
- ANNUAL FAMILY INCOME: $21,700
- MONEY THE FAMILY SPENT: $38,200
- NEW DEBT ON THE CREDIT CARD: $16,500
- BALANCE ON THE CREDIT CARD: $142,710
- TOTAL BUDGET CUTS: $385″
This is easy to see, when you lose 8 zeros, that you’re in big trouble! If your household income was $21,700, and your balance on the credit card was $142,000 you’re in very big trouble! AND when you do a budget cut of $385 you’ve cut NOTHING.
However, when the numbers are hidden by zeros — the budget cuts of 38 billion seem like an amazing savings! But they’re not.
Remember you only have 10 digits — simplify.
Today… just simplify. When you are overwhelmed, when you’re confused, or when you’re stuck – bring your life back to the basics. Determine what is important and then make your decision!
