day 633 – acupuncture

this is¬†perfect execution of the phrase¬†using my time wisely and couldn’t have used my time anymore efficiently. i was able to fit in an appointment for some needle poking and massage between morning poomsae training and afternoon teaching. believe me training more days and longer hours takes its toll on my body. this is just one of the many things i need to do to keep my knee and other body parts as happy as it will allow

money isn’t everything because it’s not the only indication as to how successful we are in life. it’s true money and success have direct correlation because we can only do so much without money. most of us work hard in life through two decades of school and work for four decades after that, not to see how much money we can accumulate in our bank account. our wealth is determined by how we impact our community and how much knowledge we get out of life, and not how many zeros our bank statement shows. no one going through school imagines or wishes to be a future hobo sitting on the street asking for passerbys to drop a few coins. if we don’t learn to use and manage it properly, what good will that do?? don’t get me wrong, no doubt number crunching is indeed important and i love money; it makes me happy when my bank account balances increases. i can almost guarantee that there isn’t anyone in the universe that doesn’t like money, i can speak for myself. what’s more important is understanding how money can facilitate us and increase our quality of life, so finding out ways to utilize money to make myself the happiest possible. not making money for the sake of making money because someone said that that is a good thing
