This is the final show in our ten-show series on lifelong learning. Today we’ll discuss five activities that will make you healthy, wealthy and wise all at the same time.
Now we’ll warn you – these activities require some multi-tasking. We usually suggest less multi-tasking but these are things ideally suited for doing more than one thing at a time.
Like walking and chewing gum at the same time!
That may make you healthier, George, but it misses the mark on helping you get wealthier and wiser. Here’s a better one: Listen to The Bigg Success Show while you walk on the treadmill.
Shameless self-promotion, Mary-Lynn! But you’re right – the great thing about podcasts is that they’re easy to download and take with you.
Of course, it doesn’t have to be our show. There’s a lot of great downloadable audio that will help you be wealthier and wiser. You could probably devour an entire week’s worth of our shows in one session on the treadmill. Then fill in the rest of the week with other great podcasts.
Ride your bike to the library and check out a book on money.
If you have a library within biking distance, this is a great way to get a little exercise while bulking up your knowledge of personal finance.
There are so many great books on investing at the library. You can see such a history. There are books from days gone by full of timeless principles sitting alongside books about current issues.
Just don’t try reading the book on the way home!
Stretch while watching one of the financial news networks.
This is a great way to get a little extra stretching in. I know I feel a lot better when I keep myself limber!
There’s so much that can be learned from watching financial news. Get the vocabulary down if you don’t have it already. Learn what’s going on in the economy and how it affects your money. Try to understand why certain stocks, or certain industries, are being recommended. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
Of course, you could also watch a DVD on personal finance.
Take an advisor out for a rousing round of golf!
Don’t rent a cart. Over the course of the course, talk about your finances. Of course, you could wait until the nineteenth hole!
When we say advisor, we’re talking about your financial planner, your attorney, your accountant, your banker, your insurance broker, your coach or anyone else who advises you about your finances.
You may not be into golf. Maybe you prefer tennis. Or racquetball. Or some other activity. Golf is a great activity for talking and walking. However, you can also talk before or after your chosen activity.
Of course, our quote today comes from Ben Franklin. Only we’ve only hit on the last part of it. The full quote is:
“Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.”
Even on those rare occasions where I get the “early to bed” part done, I can’t seem to get the early to rise part down!
You’ll be happy to know, Mary-Lynn, our fifth and final activity doesn’t require that.
Read your goal statement right before you get a good night’s sleep and first thing when you get up in the morning.
There are so many benefits of getting a good night’s sleep – better health, increased productivity and a sharper mind. What more do we need to say?
Reading your goals right before you go to bed and immediately upon rising helps you internalize them. Your vision of success gets fixed in your conscious mind so your subconscious mind can work to find ways to get there.
We love synergy here at BIGG Success. Look for ways to be healthier, wealthier and wiser all at the same time. That’s win – win – win! That’s BIGG success!

‘Q’ from Entertainment For The Rest Of Us called us with a compliment on our show. He said:
Hi George & Mary-Lynn, this is ‘Q’ from Entertainment For The Rest Of Us. I listen to the show every week. I wanted to let you know that I truly appreciate how you guys relate life on your own terms in each and every show. Specifically and most recently about social media and karaoke, and social networking and life longevity. As an entertainment fan, I really, really like that. Keep up the fantastic work and I look forward to more episodes. Take care you guys!
Thanks so much ‘Q’! You made our day.
We hope you’ve enjoyed our series on lifelong learning. Thanks so much for the gift of your time.
The Beatles sang about The Magical Mystery Tour. Please join us next time when we’ll look at the magical money illusion.
Until then, here’s to your BIGG success!
