Favorite Blog Wednesday – The Habits Of Zen.


The 12th personal finance site in my series “Favorite Blog Wednesday” is Zen Habits, written by my friend Leo. Leo started blogging not that long ago, but already has tens of thousands of visitors a day along with over 4,000 RSS subscribers. That’s quite an accomplishment in such a short amount of time!

Zen Habits is all about your life…whether it is getting things done, motivating yourself to do better, figuring out your finances or making lifestyle changes, it is covered at Zen Habits. I started reading the site back when he was on Blogger, but now on his own domain, the site has become a goldmine of great information. Here are some of my favorite posts of late:

  • Financial Zen: How to Get Financial Peace of Mind is a post I think we all could use to study. Having piece of mind when it comes to your finances is golden.
  • Being that I used to be a “creditcardaholic” as well, this one strikes quite a nerve with me. Never again will I go back. Check it out at How I Ended My Love Affair With the Credit Card (and Why I Use Cash)
  • Big Rocks First: Double Your Productivity This Week is a “getting things done” post that could be useful if you are a procrastinator at heart.
  • And posted just this morning, Simple Way to Save $3,000 a Year: Brown Bag It is a great post for those of you still buying lunch out at the office every day. I always brown bagged it when I worked in an office; otherwise I felt like I was throwing money away.

  • Overall I would give Zen Habits a 10 out of 10 if I could….Leo posts every day at least once, if not multiple times, and each post is valuable in it’s own way. If you have not checked it out yet, head on over to Zen Habits and take a look. You won’t be sorry!

    And look out for blog #13 next week…only 3 more to go until the final one!

      Hi David … what an honor! I’ve been reading these Favorite Blog posts every week thinking “Wouldn’t it be great if Zen Habits were chosen one day?” and this morning when I read the post I saw that this little wish came true. 🙂

      You’ve been an encouragement for Zen Habits from its early days, and I appreciate that … you’ve helped make it a success. Keep up the great work here!
