John Maxwell’s Advice On Quitting
When to quit:
(1) Quit something you don’t do well to start something you do well.
(2) Quit something you’re not passionate about to do something that fills you with passion.
(3) Quit something that doesn’t make a difference to do something that does.

Who knew there were so many to choose from? There are incandescent bulbs, candelabra bulbs, flourescent (or CFL’s), halogen, LED, xenon bulbs….. and the list goes on. Most of us are used to using the standard A19 base incandescent bulbs- the biggest decision we had to make was whether we wanted 25 watt, 40, 60, 75 or 100watt. Well, the days of using incandescent bulbs are officially numbered.
In 2007, Congress passed the Energy Independence and Security Act. This would force manufacturers to over time stop production on incandescent bulbs, beginning with 100 watt and moving down the list from there. 100 watt and 75 watt are obsolete today (unless stores purchased stock) and as of January 1st, 2014 60 watt and 40 watt have been omitted as well.
Where does that leave us? LED’s. Although the investment is GRAND up front, you should never have to change an LED in your lifetime, or at least not more than once. LED’s are much more energy efficient and overall better for our environment. Our recommendation: Don’t wait until all of your incandescent bulbs burn out– start now!Replace them one by one. Perhaps, one a month. It wont seem to hurt the pocketbook quite as bad that way.
Check out this great article for more information on finding the right bulb for your home. Be sure to watch the video, it will help you understand the bulb “lingo” better!
