It’s My List, I Can Change It If I Want To …
Months have gone by and I’ve learned far more that I ever thought I had the ability to. I’ve used the dictionary and thesaurus more than I ever did during my educational adventures that got me to where I am today. (Spell check is a waste of time as you can tell).My prayer life has grown and since I’m a 60 year old minister I felt good with that part of the process.
My family for some strange reason is behind me in all this. My wife is supportive and my son is co-authoring a blog entitled “Father & Son Mastermind” located at http://www.fatherandsonmastermind.com
My “Number” started out really, I mean really big then floated down to $5,425,000 with a date of 5 years. I then revised it down again to $4,190,000 and 11 years. But that is “not” my final number.
Since Adrian named it “Lee’s List” I figured I can change it if I want, after all it’s “My List”. So I have cut off another $1,190,000 which makes my new and “Final Number” $3,000,000 even. I’m going to go ahead and stay with the 11 year date.
SO WHY THE CHANGE? Not long ago I purchased a G-Scale model railroad set. That’s the big train and each car is about 4 inches wide, 8 inches tall and 12 – 16 inches long. The idea of these trains is to set them up outdoors in your yard or garden. I got a real lesson in how long a grade is needed for a train that size to climb any distance. They can only climb a 4 % grade. The higher you want them to go, the longer the track needs to be.
So here I am 60 years old and my time is limited so if I want to make it all the way to the top in 11 years I need to find a shorter hill.
