But what do you do with those pages if you don’t have a business, or if you prefer to manage your business expenses some other way? There’s no reason to let those pages go to waste. Here are some ideas we’ve found to help you make the most of your Business Expense Pages.
Track New Habits
One of the most important roles we can focus on each day is the role of self. It’s important to set goals that focus on the four aspects of self: physical, spiritual, intellectual, and social/emotional. As we improve our own abilities, we increase the strength that we can share with others. With just a little creativity, you can alter your Business Expense Pages to track your efforts for personal improvement, such as improving your water intake.
Your Business Expense Pages already have numbers for each day of the month. Just add a few vertical lines to note the hours you intend to sleep, and highlight the time you spend sleeping each night. It makes an instant bar graph so you can see how well you’re doing.
Alter the headings in your Business Expense Pages to reflect your exercise goals, and you’ll have a custom workout tracker perfectly suited to your needs.
Your unused Business Expense Pages are an ideal place to track those things that bring joy into your life each month. As you track your gratitude regularly, you’ll find that your outlook on life improves. You’ll begin to recognize the good around you more readily.
