In this episode, I share the information gathered in a study done in the 1970's to find out why people weren't happier as their incomes increased in the United States. Out of this came something called The Easterlin Paradox.
I talk about why we buy things and what we're actually seeking when we do.
Things are never part of you, but experiences are. When you pass-on, you will leave all of your things here on earth, but take everyone one of your experiences with you.
Shared experiences are an incredibly powerful part of all relationships. Because experiences become part of who I am and you're experiences are part of who you are, our shared experiences connect us at a deeper level.
It's incredibly difficult to compare experiences. We do this all the time with "things" we own, but your experiences are unique to you and can't be compared. I discuss why this helps add value to your experiences.

Look at Your Money Like You Do Your Time
We can benefit greatly from looking at our money the same way we look at our time. There is no way you're going to spend 25 hours in one day doing anything. You can't use more time than you have available. It's impossible.
Rest is like a savings plan. Most of us spend all the money that comes into our life. If we did the same thing with our time, we'd be in the hospital being treated for exhaustion. Honestly, that's what a lot of bank accounts need, to be treated for exhaustion.
Start with budget
We all have clocks which tell us how much time is left in our day. Once the clock strikes midnight, that's it, the day is over. Our budget acts in the same manner.
Your budget doesn't need to be complex. In fact, keep it as simple as possible, at least in the beginning.
It's not just about saving
The wealthy don't just focus on savings. They focus on earning as well.
Get rid of your debt on depreciating items
Other than real property (for most people, your home) everything else is a depreciating assets.
Homes can be a tremendous investment when you leverage your money (with a small down payment) and including the magic of compounding interest.
Self Discipline is spending less than you earn
The same rule you use for money can be used for food or other items.
This is how the wealthy are different from the rest of society.
This is how the physically fit are different from the rest of society

I explain the top 5 items which seem to have nothing to do with productivity, but they're making us less productive.
You'll have to listen to the episode to really understand these items, so I'm not going to list them here. Not trying to force you to list, but I think you'd read the list and just not realize why each one is so incredibly important.
This episode, as with all of them, is less than 20 minutes long. You can invest 20 minutes to find out what's slowing down your productivity.
I also share how you can get a free copy of my one page report on the five fears which are stopping most of us from finishing what we've started. Get it at http://PDesmondAdams.com/5fears
** if you're in the U.S. you can also send a text to 33444 with the words MYFREEGIFT in the body, to 33444.

I share about my personal struggles with constantly stopping what I'm doing in order to measure how well I'm doing.
For years this has been called The Paralysis of Analysis
Truth is, you'll learn more by doing, failing and recovering than you ever will by analyzing all the ways you might possibly fail. So.. get started.
I give some examples of how this is a reality in my life and the lives of some people I've recently talked with.
I also share some ways you can control this... but mostly, it's about just getting started.

Caution about risk is normal - Paralyzing fear about risks is not.
We bombard our minds with all sorts of information about real and imagined risks through media and entertainment.
At the core of our fear of risk is a lack of self-confidence.
When we don't believe in ourselves, we don't believe we can overcome the risks in life, real or imagined. So the key is to build self-confidence.
Self-confidence is like any muscle in your body, the less you use it, the less usable it seems.
You have to start small and build up that self-confidence muscle.

Brain dump your tasks and ideas but then sort them

Your value and worth is not measured by financial status.
Your value is determined by the impact your making in the lives of others.
We cover how to avoid the trap of miscalculating our value of our lives.
Even more important, I discuss why it's vital we don't do the same with the lives of those around us.
This episode will hopefully make a deep and meaningful impact in your day, week, month and even lifetime.
I share from my very personal life experiences and why I have always struggled with my own self-worth.
If you are struggling and can't possibly see how your life is more valuable than you ever thought, please email me: email@example.com
