I was just standing behind a man on his cell phone talking about what DVD to rent from a machine at the grocery store for about 20 minutes which I thought was very rude. During that time I saw the lotto sign in customer service and decided to buy some tickets and come back. He continued to talk on his cell for several more minutes before making his selection, then apologized for the wait.

I made my own DVD selection within minutes and driving home in the car I thought about how time is so much more precious than money. If one loses money they can earn it back, however once time is gone it can never be replaced. Spend your time wisely, follow your passion and do what you love and the money will follow...I hope I have found that at Wealthy Affiliate...and I hope that the long wait for the DVD was a sign that I should buy that lotto ticket...wish me luck!!

Definitely! Time flies away like the wind! Sometimes I wish I could have 48 hours in a day! To get more done--but I have to use it wisely.

Good point. Thanks for sharing!

Absolutely. The world will rotate around the Sun whether money is made, lost, or even if money never existed. Time is also a great doctor (healer of all wounds, physical, spiritual, or emotional). Good luck by the way.

Thank you!

Great post!
Time is the most valuable resource we have.
Money can never replace it.

You're right, Carol--time is a precious commodity. When I'm unsure what movie to select, I step aside when someone gets in line behind me. I only dawdle when the coast is clear. Who knows, maybe the guy in front of you made up for lost time by selecting a short movie. Good luck! :-)

I do the same too. What's even more frustrating is when I got the DVD home, it didn't work! Hope I'm luckier with the lotto!

good luck

Thanks!

I am agreed with you 100%. Money you can geit again but the time...No. well written. Thanks :)

I must agree! I do hope that 'long' wait was a sign for you to get 'winning' lotto tickets. Do not use winning as an excuse to leave WA though!!

Thank you! No, I don't plan leaving WA...I love it and the community!

A great little story. Your so right

Well said!

Good Luck, you never know what you might be getting "signs" about. Were you following your Passion at the time? If so, please blog the mental-passion combination that will make us all rich.
