Grand idea to be debt free. Of course lately going further in debt. So I ask myself why. First thought is no clear plan. Also after being so far behind it is difficult to come out. Need to cut more. So far put the verizon cell phone on a 3 month suspension. Which costs $15 per phone. If you are paid up on your bill you can suspend your service for a month for free. We have down graded the satellite to the cheapest package. However I believe that we need to get rid of it all together. This is harder than I thought. Once again great inspirations for me at this time are as follows:

  • the 48 days to the work you love book he talks about making a 5 year plan starting with where you want to be in 5 yrs and working backward to where you are now.

    I have always had a difficulty with that whole planning idea. Perhaps because I have felt that having a plan will interupt the spontaneity of life or maybe a verse in the bible that said something about not doing it. hhhhmmm I think the bible verse was more like don’t say you will do something without saying if it is God’s will.

    I guess also sometimes I have thought that if I make a plan then I won’t be open for God’s plan.

    Well I am not so sure this works so well. I see the importance of a plan and be willing to be flexible. Not to be to obsessed about the goal that your not able to stop and smell the dog poop.

    Yesterday I attempted to get a loan to pay down other debts and the propane so I could get more propane as the montana winter is still cold and I couldn’t. The loans and credit cards I have are above 75% max and I don’t have a long history. I avoid having loans or credit cards for a long time. Then when I went to get a house loan I had no credit history. So have started trying for the history.

    Of course I did quit job last summer and try a few months working on my own. Of course with no real plan and only loan money to live on. That didn’t work.

    OK OK OK maybe a plan is a good idea. I seem to have some sort of block about the whole plan thing. Perhaps it is because I have a lot of interests and have not clearly settled on what I want to do. HHHMMM Perhaps I can plan on things I know.

    I know I want to be debt free and have plenty of time and money to do the creative things I want to.

    I know that I want to be physically fit.

    I know that I want to be eating healthy.

    Hey that is a start. So the next question, which I think came from the 48days to the work I love book or, is what are you doing right now to move towards that.

    Ok I will go eat a carrot and stretch and contemplate what exercise I want to do at 22 degrees F.
