Success Triggers by Ramit Sethi – Book Buying Rule

One book I thought about buying but never did was Becoming by Michelle Obama. I wondered if it would be overrated. But now that I’m thinking about it, there’s a lot I could learn from her. Even if there was just one worthwhile idea in the book, that would be worth it. I used to look at the reviews and debate over spending the $11. I should have just spent it. I think I just worry that I won’t ever get around to finishing the book. I’ve bought some books in the past that I never got around to finishing. So, maybe my solution would be to buy one book a month and read at least 50 pages. I could easily do that if I read 1-2 pages a day. And usually, I can read a whole chapter in one sitting. So, I might try that.

I debate over whether I should spend money on getting help from a music producer. If it were a low price, I’d probably have an easier time spending money. But if it’s like $50/hour or a few hundred bucks for a song, then I tend to hesitate and not invest the money. I worry that I won’t be able to make the money back. So instead, I end up not producing anything. I think if I were to budget this out to a certain amount of money per month, maybe I’d feel more inclined to try it out and see how it works.

I used to debate spending money on courses too, even cheap ones on Udemy. Or, spending a little money on games. But now, I just buy it and try it out. I try to give it a chance. I don’t buy a lot of games or sign up for a bunch of courses at once. So, it’s not a big deal. I could spend a few bucks here and there trying new courses or new games to see how it is.

Besides books, I think I’d like to get over my hurdle of hiring a music producer to help me in creating instrumentals for song covers. I’d like to release more song covers online, but I have trouble doing it on my own. I could either learn more, or hire someone to do it. I realize that I don’t have to do everything on my own, but it comes with a price. Am I willing to pay it? Right now, I hesitate. But why not just try it and see what happens? I wonder what Ramit would say about this.
