Needs Over Wants (N.O.W.) is something that I live by. It is my Logo For Life. I find that life is a little easier to manage when you learn to place your needs before your wants. It's not always an easy thing to do, but then again, doing the "right" thing usually isn't. Besides, taking care of your needs will eventually satisfy your wants. So in my eyes it's a Win-Win! Plus saying it using the acronym reminds me that time is of the essence, and in order to prepare for the future, I have to focus on the present. The time on my clocks always reads NOW! Focus on N.O.W.
