Have some bad habits you want to extinguish?

“…therefore, if you want to do something make a habit of it, if you don’t want to do that, don’t, but make a habit of something else instead.”Epictetus

Epictetus was a journaler.  Check out this article from The Daily Stoic that details the value of keeping a journal:

In my journal, I set up a page each month which tracks some important things I want to accomplish daily for that month. I update it each month to account for new goals. These daily actions are small. But they add up to big improvements over time.

We get better action by action, day by day. Same thing applies to my financial strategy. I have some simple rules and habits that keep me on track.

#1 rule, keep more of what I earn—control

Simple action step I take—pay my whole life insurance premiums. My capital is stored in a safe environment and ready for me to deploy into other opportunities, including my real estate investments. What do you do for daily improvement?

How are you tackling those bad habits?
