Tip o’ the Morning to Ya – Everything in Moderation

Rich Habits Word of the Day

Moderation – Constraint, balance. Tom, faced with 13 inches of snow, was determined to shovel until he was done but then remembered the Moderation Rich Habit and decided not to over do it.

Rich Habits Fact of the Day

The Great Blizzard of 1888 – More than 400 people in the Northeast died during the Great Blizzard, the worst death toll in United States history for a winter storm. On March 11 and March 12 in 1888, this devastating nor’easter dumped 40 to 50 inches (100 to 127 cm) of snow in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York. Huge snowdrifts buried houses and trains, and 200 ships sank in waves whipped up by fierce winds.

Rich Habit Lesson of the Day

With the northeastern portion of the U.S. blanketed in a foot or more of snow I thought it appropriate to reinforce Rich Habit #6: I Will Live Each and Every Day in a State of Moderation. Successful people moderate things in their lives: eating, working, exercising, drinking, smoking, their emotions, shoveling snow. Take it easy out there today as you dig your way out of the snow on this very cold morning. Stick to the one hour rule: shovel for an hour and then rest and warm yourself. Then repeat until done. It could save you from injury.
