One of the factoids I have seen dismissed many times is the one concerning exercise. It's always along the lines of, "Yeah, the poor have no time to exercise because they're working two jobs or cannot afford a gym membership." Because I guess the wealthy only work part time (the thought one job can take 60-80 hours a week never crosses their minds) and exercise can only take place in a gym?I'm not claiming to be "wealthy" but I always thought the whole writing down your goals thing a little hoakey. I guess that's my pleb nature showing? Anyone write down their goals?
I am a little obsessive about these things, but I think it is helpful to separate goals from activities and have both. This is my basic list:
Morning --- Rise from bed, Dumbbell exercise and wall-scaling, Study electricity, etc
Daytime -- Work
Evening -- Baseball and sports, Practice elocution, poise and how to attain it, Study needed inventions
No wasting time at bars
No more smoking or chewing
Bath every other day
Read one improving book or magazine per week
Be better to parents
