Last week, I lead a workshop for 20 top female executives from around the world-it was a great pleasure, and a great honor. We worked on the issues that are holding them back at work, as well as the things that are keeping them from enjoying the lives they've worked so hard to create.
As a Mr. Money Mustache reader, you are on the straight and narrow path to considerable wealth. You're actively soaking up financial knowledge and putting it into play in your day-to-day life. Unless you are very new here, you probably don't need convincing of either the value of creating a golden financial situation, or the methods by which we pursue it.
Describe your own behavior in detail, and search for clues you might have missed before. Find your trigger. If you have a habit of making coffee, it might be triggered by entering the kitchen. Some people eat in response to boredom or buy stuff in response to their desires.
Take an existing cue you have, but trick yourself into triggering a different behavior. If you want to quit coffee, you could give away the coffee machine and put a box of tea or a glass of water on the countertop.
Have you ever been faced with a difficult decision and not known which direction to take? Have you ever spent days or weeks or months going back and forth on a decision? You start with "Yes I will do it," then "no I won't," then back to "yes I will."
