Motivation: Using Passwords to Achieve Goals

Daily focus / self actualization towards goals is something that has long been studied and debated.  Though many find it hard to keep the habit up and soon life gets in the way.   How to keep my focus on my goals?

I have to type my password in multiple times a day.  For years, I have been using my passwords to remind me to focus on goals.  Personal, family, financial, fitness, travel, etc. There is no limitation on what you can have as a goal.

Now what about security? Most organizations require you to change you password every 90 days. That means you can have your goal a quarter at a time. Perfect.

Will it be easy to guess? I mean aren’t you giving away your password strategy on the internet? Not really. I’ll let this xkcd comic explain it:


Summary: In short changing your password frequently and using it to set goals or remember those you have lost might actually help you exceed your goals.

Happy 2017!

I started saving as much as I could even during my first job in High School. Income’s are not stable. Plan for the worst and hope for the best.

At the least blog people:

  • Get the match your company retirement provides
  • Find your budget (you can’t set one if you don’t know what you are).
  • Find your debts interest rates.
  • Review it all.
  • Pay down debt.
  • Save Money
  • Invest Money to make Money

Once you understand what/where you are financially; be debt free.

You can open a whole new door of investing and income generation.

You really are much happier when you understand where you and work to get better.

  • Save you a click – yes having money makes you happier.  The amount of money varies for happiness.  Being uber wealthy doesn’t make you happier than being wealthy… so yea be wealthy 🙂

Looks like I am going to be writing a series of articles on personal finances coming soon!
