I have a pretty full calendar this week. It is filled with a variety of activity, from job fairs to volunteer work at a college campus to webinars to blogging and looking for scholarships for my son. I always feel happier and more productive when I have places to go to and action items to take care of. It keeps me focused on how lucky I am to have this time to do so many different things instead of sitting in an office all day doing work that I am not liking.
I was watching TV last night about real lucky people, people that won the lottery. They won a LOT of money! Donald Trump came to speak and advise each one. First he asked them of their plans for the money. One couple wanted to buy a vacation home – a very, very nice vacation home but they were not quite ready to spend the money. Another person wanted to start a business and was advised on how much that business was going to cost just to start it. Another couple were altruistic and wanted to help others! What a great couple! The reason I bring this up is because it was interesting to hear what each one had to say since winning the money. I always thought having that much money would be a great relief not to worry about paying the rent or the mortgage, you would not have to go to work for someone else – unless you wanted to, you could give money to others…and yet here these people were not sure about what to do next. I would love to have that problem.
What would you do if you won the lottery? It is always fun to dream about winning the lottery!
