Pen Power (Part 2)
Hi <>, and the warmest of welcomes to "Happy Life The JJ Way".
Last month I shared with you the amazing yet simple effect of
To jog your memory, I sought out my
to do some list-crossing (aaahh.....one of the sweet joys of life!)
and found that I had in fact, completed several items on my list - UNCONSCIOUSLY!
This really brought into sharp focus for me the magic of Writing Stuff Down! (technical term).
By the way, thank you to those of you who contacted me to report that you had been inspired by my ramblings to seek out your own
and voila! the same result - several items completed which you were unaware of even being listed! It's a phenomenon I tell you!!

Pen Power (Part 2)
You know how much you earn each month, right?
And, you know roughly how much your monthly expenses are, correct?
(If you answered 'no' to either of those questions your Happy Life is in mortal danger - seek help from our
BUT, do you have a budget WRITTEN DOWN, so you know exactly where your money is going?
Okay, so you may have an idea that your expenses are just less than your income, so you feel quite confident that you don't need to keep scrupulous records, huh?
Pen Power strikes again!
Recently I was updating my budget (an almost daily event) when
something caused me to look way back to the beginning of my records. Like a thunderbolt from the blue, I was struck by the
proof there, before my very eyes, of the Power of the Pen! (Well, actually, in this case the Excel spreadsheet).
From the first month of my records, each subsequent month my income had grown, while my expenses reduced! Writing Stuff Down produces magic! It makes you focus your attention (even subconsciously) on what you have written. This is so easy, peeps.
If your financial head is in the sand take a deep breath, withdraw your head, and get writing. I promise no matter how messy your money is at the moment, Writing Stuff Down alone will improve your fiscal situation.
You may think you have a handle on your finances, but if you're not WSD, that handle is about as effective as an ashtray on a motorbike.
If you'd like your Happy Life to be happier, take control of your finances (three minutes per day) harness your Pen Power, and Write Stuff Down!
If this is something you KNOW make it something you DO - NOW.
