Having a budget is the best way to get ahead of your spending. It can be a tedious and hard effort but it pays off over time.
As much as most people dislike thinking about a budget, there is universal acceptance that this is one of the ways to get hold of your personal finances. Keeping a personal budget comes up in almost every other book about personal finances and still most people are doing it wrong.
I have also tried several times in my life to stick to a budget with various degrees of success. Over the years, I think I got to a good-enough spot, but it still not optimal. Recently, I stumbled upon the book You Need a Budget by Jesse Mecham (link to Goodreads). and my personal process finally clicked with Jesse’s method.
In this article, I will walk you through my mechanism (influenced by YNAB) to track my family’s finances. If you follow the eight steps, you will be able to self-organize your budget.

Learn how to self-organize your personal finances by tracking spending, creating a plan, paying yourself first, and investing.
I have been waiting a lot of years to feel qualified for a post about personal finances. My theme for 2021 is financial education and I wanted to share with you my philosophy on the subject, supplemented with a few book suggestions.
There is a lot of misunderstanding around this topic and in this article I am tackling a few of these misconceptions. The most burning question is usually: “Where do I start? My financial situation is a mess…” And I think I found the best book to remedy this feeling. Once you start there is a lot to learn and a lot of strides to make, but as in everything else:

A journey of a thousand mile starts with a single step.Laozi (or Confucious).
Habits are powerful and dangerous. Combining habits with the law of manifestation can help you do daily designs for the special days in your life.
There are a lot of normal days in our lives. The days where we wake up, go to work, only to increment the progress bar. To excel during these days, you need a Daily Routine. But there are also special days. Days when you have a competition or an interview, you need to perform, you need to show what you’ve been preparing for. Days when you need to give your 100% on a workshop, a training, or a summit. For these days, you need a special routine which I call Daily Design. And you need to practice it during your normal days to make it a habit .
This article is about using visualization techniques to mentally prepare for the special days in your life. I have covered two examples so far: How to Survive the Back-to-back Meetings Week and Organizing the Perfect Workshop. But here I will approach the topic to show you how you can prepare for such events in general.

This article describes how I changed my morning routine from doing the same exercises each day to concentrating on one muscle group a day.
I started the topic about morning routine a while ago when I shared mine, calling it The Ultimate Morning Routine for Entrepreneurs – link. Then, I expanded the concept onto my family (my wife Gil and kid), which I called The Frustration Free Morning Routine – link. In the last few months, however, I went back to my personal routine and decided to modify it.
In this article, I describe my new daily morning routine, emphasizing on the exercises and the change in philosophy that I did. I still like to think of myself as “young”, but I am not sure that is true any more. So, I would recommend this article and the exercises that I describe to my readers above 30. Or once you have a family and kids and your time is limited, but you still want to be fit, have energy and look good.

Are your subconscious mind, emotional mind, and conscious mind out of sync? Is your brain operating on high frequencies without giving you rest? This article will teach you how to restore the harmony using meditation.
The Subconscious Mind is just one of the parts of our brains: 1) the conscious part that controls our thoughts; 2) the emotions part that controls our emotions; 3) the subconscious part that stores all memories, habits, and skills. Accessing that part of the brain is harder than it sounds because both other parts have to work in unison.
This article will combine two of my previous articles (Subconscious Mind – How to Unlock and Use Its Power and How to Learn Meditation and Change Your Mind and Body) and will teach you how to access (and influence) the data stored in your subconscious mind.
