Staying busy is important, and sometimes vital. For me keeping my mind busy is important to keeping me from doing something stupid.
My goals are not ones which can be achieved in one weekend. I can’t just keep buying lotto tickets in hopes that I will win the jackpot.
I have to keep chipping away at my goals over a long period of time, years even. To do that, I need to keep doing what I am doing, and not get distracted.
The secret to that is to in fact distract myself . . . Let me explain.
In order to funnel most of my cash into moving my goals forward, I need to live a very dull life. This is because, pretty much everything costs money.
Even driving anywhere costs money. So, I need to keep my mind busy with what is pretty much busy work, just to keep me from costing me any more money that I have to spend.
This is not forever, just for now, just until I get over this hump, until Total Debt Freedom.
So, I either play a video game that I have played many times or I write one of a few books that I have on the go, just to keep my mind occupied and my cash flow safe.
I will get to where I want to go and I will deal with what I need to deal with along the way, but I will keep myself entertained in the cheapest possible way . . . for now.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward.
