2020 has been such a weird time. Since we are inside of our homes I thought it would be a good idea to share some productive things to do instead of worrying about our financial situations. This is a tough time for many people and I too am looking forward to brighter days ahead, be strong heroes!
Your obstacles are trying to teach you something.-Ryan Holiday
#1 Take a Course/ Learn a new skill
Now is the perfect time to learn a new skill or master a new one. Plus some skills you can even master and then use them to make extra money. Some courses you will have to pay for, but there are also a ton of free courses available. There are 450 Ivy League schools offering courses you can take online for free. check those out here! I also have some financial courses available if you were interested in checking those out.
#2 Declutter Your home
How many of us have places in our homes that could use some tidying up? No, am I the only one? Since we are already stocked with cleaning supplies why not use some time to declutter, and get organized.
#3 Declutter your Computer & Email
Since we will be spending more time online, now is a great time to clean up your desktop background, delete old files, add some files to storage to clear up space and let’s not forget about those thousands of emails we have just sitting there.
#4 Check your net worth
Forgive me I know this post is supposed to be about reliving us of our financial worries however I do believe that now is a good time to check your net worth to see where you stand. I know it is painful trust me I checked mine and lost $12,000 since last month. Checking my net worth each month is important to me. I used my, 12 month Hero, In Your Finances Workbook and Growth planner to track mine.
However, you can also track your net worth digitally. Your net worth is what you are worth financially or all of your assets minus all of your debts.
#5 Track your abundance
Since tracking our net worth’s this month can be a bit painful let’s take some time to track the abundance flowing in our life as well as write down what we are grateful for. What does tracking your abundance look like? It looks like writing down how many things have come into your life this week, day or month that you didn’t have to pay for yourself. For example, if someone bought you a bottle of wine, or a book, or gave you a ride somewhere you would count how much that is worth and then add that to your audience list. I have an abundance tracker inside of my Hero, In Your Finances Workbook and Growth planner.
