Time is more precious than money

Last Update: September 02, 2013

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!!

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!!
