The Integrated Journey

We should not fret for what is past, nor should we be anxious about the future; men of discernment deal only with the present moment. – Marcus Aurelius

Cut the Fat.. or Your Pennies

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

The Canadian government announced yesterday that they’re phasing out the penny this year.

It costs them 1.5 cents to make each penny, and in aggregate over $100 million a year to keep the penny in circulation.

This is a great reminder to look at all the behaviours you engage in and taking the time to identify which of them in aggregate cost you more than they should.

Wasting 30 minutes a day adds up to more than full week by the end of the year.

A $5 specialty coffee a day adds up to over $1,800 a year.

Conversely small positive changes also make a big difference in aggregate.

Cut the fat, and stop the slow decline of your success.
