Be positive and use a pen

Apparently when people pay off debt they are able to learn from it in ways they wouldn't otherwise. As in when you have to budget and save money every month or maybe take on an extra job to pay off your debt it means a lot more to you than if you had won the lotto or if a credit company forgives your debt.

What does this have to do with the archaic system of putting ink to paper? I think the act of writing things down helps you remember them better. I also think it helps you feel more like you earned what you wrote down. So I recommend people write down the things they're proud of you.

What were your career accomplishments this last year? What things did you excel at? Writing it down might help you to cement those moments into your brain rather than just keeping a word document of your goals and achievements. Try it.
