One Million Pennies for Your Thoughts

Technorati Profile

Most old timers and youngsters with old timer mindsets live for a day when you can pack your wagon, go someplace new, and have at least a 50-50 chance of doing better and a real possibility of doing a whole lot better.

Corporate America and MegaCorporate World have had enough time to scope the whole planet out, and those odds cited above are fantasy, when you think of physical moves. You can mentally move yourself with education, and think up stuff that hasn't been done before, and still strike it rich. This concept too, is moving very slowly into the General American Consciousness, GAC.

Basic through advanced ed is where the riches of the future are found.

Try this quick test:

Which would you rather have deposited electronically into your bank account?

seven thousand, seven hundred and seventy seven dollars and seventy seven cents?


one million pennies?

If you or your kids can't do this in under ten seconds, invest in books and tutoring.

Such a calculation is just one of the many things that are slowing down for me as I approach age 68. I gotta believe the important thing is to get there eventually.

But still, more and more, by the time I get there, everyone else has already had their meal and a nice conversation and left!
