3 Steps to Phenomenal-ness
- Created on 30 April 2014
We recently shared that one is 33% more likely to accomplish goals when they are written, shared with a friend, and reviewed weekly. Either because of said research or coincidentally or both, my money buddy and I have been doing just that. Thanks Brown Suga Sho’Nuff! It’s too soon to really measure our productivity improvement. However, I feel like things are definitely trending in the right direction. Our process is simple enough:
1. Make written to-do lists. I’ve found doing this either first thing in the morning, or the last thing before wrapping up for the evening helps me think clearly. We’ve also experienced a noticeable drop in productivity when this step is neglected.

5 Things to know about Social Security
- Created on 19 April 2014
Sorry guys, the SSA put out this white paper specifically for women. I’ll do some digging to find the related details for our gentlemen readers next. Ladies, these points are interesting. I’ve highlighted a few. To read the full details on the SSA’s website, click here.
1. As long as you have worked 10 years and earned 40 credits, you are eligible for a Social Security benefit. As of today, once you reach 62, you’re eligible.
2. There is no limit or penalty (i.e. your benefit is reduced) for married couples. A non-working spouse is only entitled to ½ her husband’s benefit if she never worked outside the home (that sucks!).
3. If you are due two benefits (your own and a portion of your husband’s), you’ll only get the hire of the two.
4. Divorcees who were married at least 10 years are eligible for a portion of your ex’s benefit.
5. When you spouse (or ex) dies, you are eligible for a widow’s benefit.
Just FYI. Something to keep in mind.
