What is Your Train Wreck?

Last week I briefly discussed the three train wrecks that can mess up your life.  Mine at this point in my life is the financial area because I am dependent on the income from my full time job and can’t enjoy that income the way I would like. My health is pretty good and I could use some friends but finances is my current number one.

I have a plan to replace my salary with income earned on the web. Part of that plan involves this blog but there is way more involved. Right now my goal is to create a blog that attracts and keeps involved readers. Clearly it is important o provide value.  Finding and communicating that value is clearly something that takes commitment and work. It also takes some experimentation.  I am on my way and committed to learn and grow my ability and make this blog and my other web pages sources of value to readers.

So that is how I am addressing my biggest train wreck.

So much for me, now to the important question.  What is yours?  Which of the three train wrecks is your biggest problem. What are you doing about it?  How is it working? Leave a comment?

Maybe you are successful where I am struggling but you have a different train wreck and need help or encouragment.

    My Trainwrecks:

    1. Procrastination
    2. Denial
    3. Not a fan of Change

    There’s only so much time before the old saying “You’re young, you can do anything” passes me by. I know what I want to end up, I’m just not thrilled with the road it takes to get there(school).

    Micah,
    Thinks about where you want to go. Maybe school isn’t the only way.

    Ralph I think financial is most people’s train wreck at this time. Even those on “stable incomes” such as retirements or social security are worrying about how they will make ends meet. I know it’s mine. At nearly 60, I’m back in college trying to finish the degree that has been interrupted twice now — once to see my husband through and the second time for lack of money.

    I’m hoping that getting this degree will help ensure my financial future is more stable.

    Margaret,
    Best to you. And I hope that the degree makes your finances more secure.
