Most successful people I know keep track.
They keep track of how much food they eat to avoid overeating. They keep track of how much money they spend to avoid overspending. They keep track of how many miles they run to keep accountable to exercise goals.
They keep track.
During the holiday season, I commit to keeping track–for financial, physical, and spiritual reasons. It’s easy to start a food journal, a budget, and an exercise log. It’s much harder to struggle when you’ve gone over budget in any area whether food, money, or even relationally. So today, I keep track.
