Thursday Thirteen #3


Thirteen things I know now that I wish I new then....

1. Popularity is relative, and fleeting.

2. Morals and values are what really count.

3. You really do use algebra in real life. (i.e. If your destination is 10 miles from home and you can only drive 30 miles per hour because of heavy traffic and have to be there in 15 minutes, what time will you arrive?)

4. Brothers really aren't that bad.

5. Moms really do know something.

6. All the good men aren't taken

7. What you know is a lot more reliable than who you know

8. The people you associate with and the books you read determine a lot about the kind of life you'll lead

9. God is good and gracious, even when it seems like He isn't

10. Hard work builds character

11. It is much harder to be kind that it is to be be right

12. Admitting you are wrong is not admitting that you are weak

13. Regularly putting money away in savings, no matter how small the amount, is a very good thing. I recently read that a teenager at age 16 can save $2,000 a year for 5 years in an IRA account and then stop contributing and they will have $1 million by the time they are 60. On the other hand, if you wait until you are 40, you must invest $2000 every month for twenty years to hope to retire with $1 million.
