  2. Think like an entrepreneur. Learn to accomplish more with less resources. Get creative with solutions. ACTION: When solving a problem, ask yourself, “How can I solve this with what I have available right now?”
  3. Practice discernment. Consider purchases carefully and with thought before adding it to your cart. ACTION: Pause and reflect on your next purchase before buying it.
  4. Reflect on your younger self. Take time to contemplate what your younger self found meaning in and enjoyed. ACTION: Schedule time to think about the person you were when you were young and how that matches up to who you are today.
