Every night when I got back home after a day, I will reflect back about how my money was spent.
As I put them keys, phone whatever in my pockets on the coffee table, come the wallet I will recall back every movement of money for the day. What I did with them. Trace & record with receipts.
The good and the bad purchases. The well-justified and the poor choices. The rightfully deserved and the unnecessary losses. The satisfaction and the regrets. I will reglect them all.
My heart feels sorry inside everytime I mistreat my hard-earned monetary resources in the way of poor impulsive unsatisfactory decision making.
Perks of being analytical & critical.
Then I will vow to spend better the next day. To make sure nothing goes to waste. Meaning better decisions.
Now to apply this habit to reflect deeds & actions as well.
