What Really Matters in the Grand Scheme of Things

Filed under: children — admin @ 12:05 am

Yesterday I had half day off. My son and I went to Target in the afternoon. As we left the store, he tossed the receipt to the trash can outside the store. “You don’t usually keep your receipts, do you?” I asked. “No,” said he.

“I don’t like spending time shopping round or return it afterward,” he continued. “You might save a little after spending some time, but in the grand scheme of things, does it matter that much? I mean you could put into good use that time.”

I was so glad to hear this. Indeed, only when you have too much time and too little resources do you care more about resources than about time.
