Note to Ramit : Dude, your site leaves me feeling lost!! You are the only PF site I visit, so it’s close to medicinal, but seriously, lost!! I picked one of your all time favorite posts to read today – http://www.iwillteachyoutoberich.com/blog/why-your-friends-dont-save-money-eat-healthier-or-clean-their-garages/ or http://www.getrichslowly.org/blog/2009/03/17/the-psychology-of-passive-barriers-why-your-friends-dont-save-money-eat-healthier-or-clean-their-garages/. Yep, Yep. Really buy into the passive barrier theory and so following your exhortation, my 10 things I would do if I were perfect:
1. Understand my personal finances
2. Call all the old people
3. Practice kathak
4. Be an adventurous cook
5. Not nag my kids
6. Have a more active social life
7. Take vacations to landmarks
8. Keep a Clean house
9. Be a size 6 with no hanging tummy
10. Have a beautiful yard.
Hmm, this was actually hard to do. I got up to #6, and then had to really look hard for more. Does that mean I consider myself near-perfect!!! or I’m having a mental block regarding perfection behaviours? Likely the latter. Hmm. Need to do the 5 whys for each of these.
