In this episode, we look at the APR on our credit cards and loans. Quotes: "More than 40% of Gen Z, around 30% of Millennials and Gen X, and almost 40% of Baby Boomers say they don’t know what the interest rate on their credit card is, according to a new survey by Stash, a micro-investing and banking app. But it’s not like folks don’t need to know because they’re paying off their bill in full each month and not triggering any interest charges: Americans paid $113 billion in credit card interest last year, up 12% from 2017, and up a whopping 49% from five years ago when the national average was just $76.3 billion, according to MagnifyMoney, a financial product comparison website." Takeaways: 1. A higher APR or Annual Percentage Rate leads to paying more overtime. This seems basic but is often underestimated. 2. If you aren't extremely careful, you can get into a situation where you are never able to get out of the debt (student loans). 3. Higher APR means less gets paid on the principle which means carrying a higher balance for longer and lowering your credit score. Here's what to do: Find your APR for every line of credit Create a plan to repay those debts. Either based on APR or on balance (avalanche or snowball) Resources: https://money.com/millennials-love-to-pay-with-credit-cards-but-almost-30-of-them-cant-name-their-interest-rate/ --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

There is a very simple, straight-forward approach to creating change. In this episode I'll share it with you. Your outcome is tied to your actions Change in outcome happens when there is a change in action Change in action happens when there is a change in identity, belief, or desire Change in identity, belief, or desire comes from exposure to new identities, beliefs, or desires Exposure comes in books, meeting new people, doing new things, or thinking more deeply on what you already know (journaling, meditation...etc) Join Blinkist: http://blinkist.com/tinyleaps --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

In this episode, we look at the mental health benefits of having a routine. 1. Take Control of Your Sleep Cycle "Routine can liberate your mental health, and it can have incredible psychological benefits, including alleviating symptoms of mental disorders, and insomnia. Creating a daytime routine for yourself or a loved one can promote better sleeping cycles." (Dr. Danielle Forshee) 2. Know What to Expect "The importance of mental health has been associated with a variety of mental health conditions, including bipolar disorder, addiction, depression, among others. The reason behind this is that when we organize ourselves and know what to expect, it’s easier to actively work towards counteracting the thoughts and symptoms of any of the aforementioned mental health conditions." (Psychology Today) 3. Take More Time Off "Creating a routine allows us to build in time for the important things. This includes time to rest, relax, and have fun. It’s not perfect – there are always going to be days when something overruns, a job takes three times as long as we expect it to take, or someone pops in unexpectedly. But structuring our time to include some downtime increases the likelihood that we’ll manage to have that time most days."

In this episode, we look at the benefits of performing weekly reviews. Join Blinkist Benefits: Increased likelihood of doing it Uses guilt and loss to your advantage Resources: Back to Basics: Your Weekly Review Quotes: "No matter how organized you are, how together your system is, how careful you are about processing your inbox, making a task list, and working your calendar, if you don’t stop every now and again to look at the “big picture”, you’re going to get overwhelmed. You end up simply responding to what’s thrown at you, instead of proactively creating the conditions of your life. Almost every productivity expert recommends some kind of review, whether it’s a formal process you crank through (like David Allen recommends) or simply a few minutes of “me time” to think about where you’re at. Although there’s nothing magical about the week as a unit of time, doing such a review weekly seems to work best – it’s a block of time that’s very deeply ingrained in us as a scheduling unit." --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
