I recently learned from my brother in-law that a more effective way to exercise your muscles is to not do the same routine everyday... Rather, you have to give your muscles time to develop and build up stronger muscles... In addition, if you exercise the same muscles everyday, you're only breaking the new formed muscles.
Financial muscles? Of course, that's just a jargon I came up with to refer to financial literacy. Every time I finish reading a book, be it about business, investing, personal finance, self help or motivational I always take time to apply what I've read and not read a book for a couple of weeks (usually 2 to 3 weeks) especially closely related ones. I remember my first application of the book Rich Dad Poor Dad was to go out there and actually "Sell" some stuff. Then I read about managing debt and the application was to zero my credit card debt. And then I read again about business related materials, I follow the exercises given there and again take a few days or weeks to actually apply those things.
If you try to learn everything all at once, especially if it's on the same subject then you'll eventually get tired and burnt out. So take time and let those financial muscles develop by applying what you've learned on the real world.
