March Madness - Day 2

Every minute counts!

Busy body, that's me. 😜

As I was leaving the office and walking to my car, I started to consider my options for the evening. It would be the first Friday evening that I wasn't on the road or with my family. That meant I could find lots to get into, right?

I could go get ice cream. 🍨
I could find the mall. 🏬👠👗
I could go home and watch tv. 📺
I could read one of my many books.📘
I could go find something tasty to eat. 🍖🍕🍔🍗
I could ride through neighborhoods for housing options.🏡
I could go see where the middle school and high schools I interested in are located. 🏫

I had lots of options.

But I decided to work my plan. All of my earlier ideas were great, but they would not have allowed me to accomplish the task at hand. Since I was challenged to run one mile per day, I needed to get it done before the darkness became my excuse not to complete the task of the day.

Some people wonder how "successful" people become "successful."
There really is no secret. Among a few other things, they simply recognize that every minute counts and they make the most of each minute they get.

How do you currently maximize your minutes? 

If you have not been maximizing your minutes, what is one thing you can start to do today to maximize your minutes?

The Lesson from the B

The B led me to a blessing......
The B word really is not a bad word. 
BUDGETS are such a blessing even though sometimes they feel like a curse. 
When the July budget was completed, it was zeroed out. This means that we intended for our checking account to hit $0 by the end of the month. 
When a budget hits $0 there is a likelihood that things can get tight, especially if you fail to account for something along the way. 
And of course, I failed to account for something. I failed to consider the need to travel down to Daytona Beach and back, not once but twice, during the month. 😓
Although it is not a long ride from Jacksonville to Daytona Beach, any vehicle used for travel would not be able to complete the mission on fumes alone. The 92-mile drive needed fuel for the four trips. 
That's when it happened. 
I stopped for gas and before I even made it to an open pump, the yellow signage immediately caught my attention. Yes, that is E85. According to Wikipedia, it is an ethanol blend…
