"Stay ready so you don't have to get ready." Uncle Snapper told me that one day. I was probably a kid. Of course I didn't understand but I agreed. "I'm always ready Unc!" Yep, that sounds about right. Ms. Always Ready GiGi. It comes a point in all of our lives where we must consistently be on our 'A' game. It is now more important than ever to be one step ahead of your competition. In this blog I am going to give you two viable tips on how to STAY READY.
- Create a Better Morning!
Before you go to sleep at night prepare your life for the day ahead. Lay out your clothes, pack your lunch and breakfast, create a plan, create a to-do list, keep a calendar. All of these things will improve your mornings and create a great start to the day. As kids my parents told my siblings and I to always put out our clothes for the next day. It wasn't until I became an adult that I realized how important this is to start my days off right. Selecting an outfit is probably the most stressful thing to deal with in the morning when you don't have kids. If you have kids then kids is definitely more stressful but you get my point. You can change the energy in your world by creating a morning that is well put together versus waking up to chaos.
- Learn to Save money effectively!
Open a savings account, invest in a Roth IRA, get a whole life insurance policy, make sure you're properly insured, and stop living beyond your means. Most people can't stay ready because they have no control over their finances. Everything is all out of wack. We have to learn how to effectively save money without spending every dime to our names. If we learn how to save then we're always prepared for life's tragic moments. Try to keep 3 months rent in the savings, your credit card balance low and make sure you are insured properly so you don't find yourself paying for unnecessary law suits.
Now that you know how to stay ready...go make some changes in your everyday life. Yes ...RIGHT NOW DAMMIT! STAY READY SO YOU WON'T HAVE TO GET READY!
