Your Worst Financial Habit?
Okay, let’s all confess, so we can then resolve to improve: what bad financial habit do you most want to break?
For me, I had to think about this a lot, and here’s my main conclusion: I’m a lot more adept at seeing other people’s bad financial habits than I am at recognizing my own. 🙂
But here’s what I came up with: I tend to think I’m smarter than I am about money. I need to be more open to other’s views and recognize that I may not have all the information I need to make a good decision.
Phew! I feel so unburdened. Thank you!
The Bad Financial Habit You’d Most Like to Break
Your turn. What’s the poor financial habit you’d most like to rid yourself of?
After you confess, then let’s dig a bit deeper: What do you think has so far prevented you from kicking the habit? And what would it take to motivate you to take on changing this habit?
I’m not expert on breaking bad habits and forming good habits, but my friend Kalen at Money Mini Blog has written quite a lot about how habits shape us. You can do a site search on “habit” to see what he has to offer, but in particular I recommend “The Ultimate Quick-Guide to Breaking Bad Habits in 4 Steps“.
