One of the most frustrating things in life is having to constantly change your passwords. Not only do you have passwords for just about every site you visit, but now, many sites are requiring that you change your password on a regular basis.
If you’re like me, it’s extremely hard to remember which password I used for what site. And when you’re forced to change the password, it’s difficult to make sure the new one you have to come up with isn’t a repeat of what you used before.
I recently heard a great way to tackle this problem. When setting up your next password, instead of trying to use a family name, animal name, or familiar place, try using one of your personal goals.
Yes, use a goal as your password. By doing so, it makes your password easy to remember. At the same time, it keeps your objectives front and center.
Think about it. Every time you enter your password it will remind you of your target and help reinforce where you want to go.
Once you achieve that goal, change your password and move on to the next ambition. No longer will you have to wait for the website administrator to tell you to change your password. How simple, and at the same time productive.
Maybe I should change my password to WriteMoreMartysMinutes.
Until next time…I’m Marty, make every minute count.
