Perserverance

Perserverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.

- Newt Gingrich

Admittedly Newt Gingrich is a controversial character. But, we're going to step away from that controversy to focus on what he said. And, that rings true no matter what your politics.

We all get tired working sometimes. Nothing at all surprising about that. The decision you make at that point is the critical one.

Will you focus on your fatigue? And quit? Or will you perservere and continue to work towards your goal? The choice is your's.

We're about 60% through the month of December. We've been focusing on our financial transactions. But it's a busy month. With a lot of financial activity. You're tired. Just like everyone else. It's crossed your mind to quit. So now the choice is your's. You can say that you've put in enough hard work. And quit. Or you can say that you're tired, but your goal is worth pursuing. And continue to focus on your finances today.

So what's it going to be? Your call.

About Gary

For more than 25 years, Gary Foreman has worked to manage money effectively. Prior to starting The Dollar Stretcher, he was a financial planner and purchasing manager. While helping clients manage their hard earned money as a financial planner, he applied commonsense, time-tested techniques during the turbulent 1980’s. The experience convinced him that you didn’t need to hit the lottery to accumulate significant wealth. Following that, Gary had an opportunity to learn more about how to get the best value for a dollar spent in the corporate world. As the Purchasing Manager for a computer manufacturer, he was responsible for supervising over $10 million in annual purchases. Gary began The Dollar Stretcher website <www.TheDollarStretcher.com> and newsletters in April 1996. Over 300,000 readers benefit from the time and money saving ideas presented in The Dollar Stretcher newsletters each week. His mission is to help people "Live Better for Less". He also provides private label newsletters for companies wishing to provide money saving information for their clients and/or prospects. Gary lives in Florida along with his wife of thirty years and their two children. Much of his time is spent working with the men's ministry of his church. One of their ongoing projects is the "Holy Smoke BBQ" which sells bbq on Friday nights with the profits going to support local foster kids and orphans. When he has a free moment you’ll find him restoring a Checker station wagon nicknamed “Two Ton” or cruising in a '65 Impala SS Convertible with doo-wops playing in the background.
