Each month, I schedule SMALL automatic transfers from my checking account into savings for college, taxes, vacation, etc. I schedule the transfers for the day after my paycheck is deposited, so saving takes priority over any purchases. I'm always surprised how fast these auto transfers add up!
Covey followers will recognize this one. Always concentrate on the IMPORTANT. If you only schedule time for the URGENT, you will always be at the mercy and stress and tyranny of the URGENT. In the beginning everything will be seem to be urgent; put urgent & important first, and then deliberately schedule important next. Over time keep carving out larger and larger blocks of time for IMPORTANT, and the tyranny of the URGENT will fade, along with stress.
