Today’s minimotivator #9-2010: Putting off happiness

James Openheim said, “The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance; the wise grows it under his feet.”

It seems a lot of put things off. We put off holidays, spending time with friends, rewards and even happiness. We do this because we say to ourselves, “We will be happy when ….”

The problem with this thinking is you might die before you get to be happy. A survey done in the US several years ago found the average father spent 37 SECONDS quality time a day with their kids. They were really putting everything off to get ahead.

Don’t put things off. Plan for your future by saving but live today.
