Yet another week to do with as I will. Seven days, 1440 hours each, sixty minutes each, sixty seconds each. Seconds are too small to count, even though they do. Minutes pass quickly, hours are easier to track. It is my intention not to spend the time I have available to me this week but rather to invest that time. Every minute spent in a worthwhile endeavor is an investment in the future.
Much is written on the value of delaying gratification. This is an ongoing debate, whether to grab for the gusto now or to wait until later. Unless there is a compelling reason to wait, you should take advantage of the opportunities as they present themselves. What good does it do to put off enjoying the fruits of your labors when tomorrow is promised to no one. I read a story about a boy who lived in a town where the circus passed through town twice each year. Each year his father told him they could only afford to go to the circus once that year and he had to choose whether to go in the spring or thye fall. he always chose the spring and somehow his father always found the money to go in the fall too.
I have a friend whose daughter wanted him to bring her to an Elvis Presley concert in the spring of 1977. He had to work or something that night but he promised he would bring her the next time Elvis came through tow\n. Elvis died in August of that year and he never got to take his daughter to the concert.
Live For Today!
