Two Quotes and Two Spreadsheets

Here are two quotes and two spreadsheets – one spreadsheet to go with each quote.

Quote No. 1 – by Dave Ramsey

A budget is telling your money where to go instead of wondering where it went. You must gain control over your money or the lack of it will forever control you.

Although money isn’t everything (not even close), it is certainly very important.

Money gives us options, choices, and freedom. If we get a handle on our money, we are in a much better position to take control of our own lives.

However, if we let our bad money habits slide out of control, it will not be long until our money is in control of our lives instead.

The choice is yours. If you stay on top of your personal finances, you can make your life a whole lot easier. On the flip side if you let your finances get on top of you, that is a lot of weight to live with day after day.

Quote No. 2 – by Jim Rohn

The only thing worse than not reading a book in the last ninety days is not reading a book in the last ninety days and thinking that it doesn’t matter.

To tell you the truth, if you had met me just five short years ago and tried to convince me how important it was to read good books to expand my knowledge and foster my wisdom, I probably wouldn’t have wanted to listen.

I thought I was a pretty smart kid and fairly educated, so why would I need to read books in the first place? I graduated as the valedictorian in high school and got my Master’s degree in Systems Engineering in 5 years. How much smarter did I need to be anyway?

The thing was, I didn’t know how much I really didn’t know.

When I finally started discovering myself and my true-life aspirations, I started reading. And once I started reading, once I started learning, and once I started growing, I realized two very important things.

  • I didn’t know nearly as much as I thought I did
  • I truly wish I had started reading many years earlier

The impact good books have had on my life in the past five years alone is indescribable.

Plus, there’s no way I’d be where I am today if it weren’t for the books I’ve read and the lessons I’ve learned. But enough about me, let’s get back to spreadsheets.

If you want to start reading or are already an avid reader, I recommend you take a look at the Google Sheets Reading Tracker. This free spreadsheet template makes it easy to keep a record of all the books you read! Plus, it’s one of the easiest ways to keep your reading records safe and available in the cloud!
