Do You Have Rhythm?
– A special post from Sammy, It’s a Habit
Hello to All My Friends!
It’s time to head back to school and I have a question for you – do you have rhythm? According to the dictionary, the word rhythm can mean a typical pattern of movement or an activity in which some action repeats regularly. Now compare that definition to one of my favorite words, habit! The dictionary defines a habit as a pattern of behaving that has become fixed by repeating it often. The definitions are very similar, aren’t they? Basically, a rhythm and a habit are ways of behaving that we repeat again, again, and again.
When it comes to the 3 S’s, school, saving and spending, we all have rhythms and habits. Do you know what your rhythms and habits are when it comes to school, saving money and spending money? For example, what is your daily rhythm or habit – do you play or do your homework first? If you are not sure what your rhythm or habits are when it comes to school, saving and spending, you will want to find out. Why? Because, being aware of and picking the right rhythms and habits helps a person achieve their dreams and goals.
Here are two tips to help you with school, saving and spending rhythms and habits:
- Keep a journal of how you choose to use your time and money.
- Review your journal with your mom, dad, teacher and a manager where you save your money. Ask them if you are practicing the right rhythms and habits to achieve your dreams and goals.
I know you can do it. Now, go get to it!
