I don’t have a very addictive personality.  I’ve never smoked, nor was I ever hooked on gambling, nor had to get my fix from surfing the internet.  But the last month or so I’ve been obsessed with something.  I might actually consider it an addiction. 
The first step is acknowledgement.
Yes, I Matt W. am addicted to the idea of being rich.  I think about it when I wake up in the morning, during my lunch break, and in the evening.  Several nights over the past month it has kept me awake.  On my lunch break I write business plans, develop product ideas, and orgainize my spreadsheets.
Last night I found a page describing an Internet Marketing guy that took a challenge his friends gave him to turn $150 into $15000 in 1 month.  He documented the entire process of what he bought, and what he sold to make the money.  In the end he lost the bet, but he came oh so close.  over $12 000 of profit in 1 month including spin up time. He wasn’t allowed to use any resources that he had personally except his knowledge. The nice thing about his blog documenting his process is that it is very reproducable.  So I was hooked.  My mind was racing with the possibilities.
As a side thought, This webpage will probably soon see a redesign, as I re-align it with my new goal of being rich.
