#615 38. Cut one expense. Right now
 Cut one expense. Right now, you’re spending money on something you don’t use, don’t need, or don’t want. But since you buy it, you feel you have to use it. I subscribed to a number of magazines (because subscribing is really cheap compared with buying at the newsstand). Great–but then the magazines show up. Then I have to read them. If I don’t, they sit around making me feel guilty.
So I dropped three or four. I don’t miss them.
Often the biggest savings in cutting an expense isn’t the actual cost; it’s the time involved in doing or maintaining or consuming whatever the expense represents.
Pick one expense you can eliminate that will also free up time and effort: Your bottom line and your workday will thank you for it.
QUESTIONS for thinking it through:
How could this clarify my Reality?
How could this benefit if added to my Disciplines?
Who needs to hear this?
