When possible pay more than the minimum as this will help pay off the loan faster, but at least pay the Pay (delete the 2nd pay) minimum balance each month. No missed payments!
When you do have missed payments on your bills or credit cards, make sure you get this straightened out ASAP, get your payments up to date and stay on top of them. You need to remember that your long term history of payments has a factor in your credit history.
