Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love

We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.

But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.

48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.

If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.

Learning to live with money


Have you ever had a difficult time dealing with a situation or a relationship?  The problem you are dealing with leaves you confused and not knowing what to do or where to turn.   Then you get to the point of just tolerating the thing and doing the best you can, hoping something changes.  I have learned that things will deteriorate worse if you do nothing. We must be proactive if we want things to change. We must have a plan.   Don’t wait till the perfect plan comes along.  As the great George S. Patton said “A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.”  Money is one of those things people have a hard time learning to live with.  I once heard that rich people and poor people can have the same god, money!  Why is money so hard to live with?  It is basically addition and subtraction, right?  No, as Dave Ramsey says, it is 20% head knowledge and 80% behavior.   We would never have a money problem if it was only a math issue.  There is not an area of life that money does not touch.  We give money more power than it deserves in our lives.  You may be thinking, yes it is just like oxygen we need it to live.   I guarantee you that most people would give every last penny they had to buy a little extra oxygen if it was needed to live.  If we really had to we could learn to live with a lot less than what we have. The things we “think” we need are not really necessities.   Determine what is important in your life and use money as a tool to get the important things.  Learn to live with money, as a tool, and not as if it is life itself.  Money is the medium that we use in exchange for things of value.  Money is amoral; it takes on the personality of its owner.  We have all probably heard this bible verse in 1 Tim: 6:10- For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.  We are familiar with the first part but the second part really speaks to me.  You can do some crazy things for money if you do not learn how to live with it.  Get a plan, and prioritize it according to what is important to you and your family.  Get on a budget and execute your plan, violently, and get your life back.  Let me know if I can help.
