Instead of the standard article, this week I thought I'd post an excerpt from my upcoming book, "Zooming Thru Life: Creative Tips To Bring Sanity To Your On-The-Go Lifestyle."
What's more enticing? A pile of one dollar bills or a stack of twenties? Naturally, the twenties. So why help someone along on his or her personal road to temptation? Make your big wad of bills seem smaller by wrapping the smallest denomination bills on the outside. It doesn't have to be U.S. currency either. Every country in the world has paper money and most of them use our familiar numerals. Just wrap the small denomination bills on the outside and leave the more valuable ones in the center like the crème filling in a Twinkie.
We've got thugs in every country, including the good old U.S. of A. So it only makes sense to make this tip a habit.
I love this tip. In fact, it was the one that inspired me to write this entire book. Now an entire series of articles, a blog and additional future volumes have sprung from this one tip.
Once you've adopted this practice, apply the next one to your money too.
If you liked this tip, you'll be pleased to know there's a whole book filled with similar advice. Paul Carhart’s book, Zooming Thru Life: Creative Tips To Bring Sanity To Your On-The-Go Lifestyle, will be available from your favorite online bookseller, Winter 2009. Stay up to date: paulcarhart.com.
