Sammy Rabbit Blog: Do You Have the Right Rhythm?

Hello to All My Friends!

It is time to head back to school and I have a question for you – do you have rhythm? According to the dictionary, the word rhythm can mean a typical pattern of movement or an activity in which some action repeats regularly. Now compare that definition to one of my favorite words, habit! The dictionary defines a habit as a pattern of behaving that has become fixed by repeating it often. The definitions are very similar, aren’t they? Basically, a rhythm and a habit are ways of behaving we repeat again, again, and again.  

When it comes to the 3 BIG “S’s,” school, saving and spending, we all have rhythms and habits. Do you know what your rhythms and habits are when it comes to school, saving money and spending money? For example, what is your daily rhythm or habit – do you play or do your homework first? If you are not sure what your rhythm or habits are when it comes to school, saving and spending, you will want to find out. Why? Because, being aware of and picking the right rhythms and habits helps a person achieve their dreams and goals.

Here are two tips to help you with school, saving and spending rhythms and habits:

  1. Keep a journal of how you choose to use your time and money
  2. Review your journal with your mom, dad, teacher and a manager where you save your money. Ask them if you are practicing the right rhythms and habits to achieve your dreams and goals.

 

I know you can do it. Now, go get to it!

Your friend,

The Savings Plan by Sammy Rabbit

The Savings Plan by Sammy Rabbit 

Hello friends!  

It is smart to have a money plan and do all you can to work that plan. It is smart to know where you want your money to go so it gets there and just doesn’t end up anywhere.  That’s what a plan can do – help you put your money where you want to. If you stick to it, you can do it. 

Here are a few things to know about plans: A good plan is in writing. A good plan is clear and easy to understand. A good plan has a start and an end date. A good plan includes small steps. A smart person puts energy, enthusiasm and pep into working each of those steps. A smart person reviews their plan regularly. A smart person gives their plan time to work. A smart person adjusts their plan when they know for sure the plan is not working. 

Anyone can have a plan and smart people do. So should you. You are smart too. You can do it! Now, go get to it!
