Working on your tan! by Working on your tan!(c) 2003
One of my favorite sayings is 'youth is wasted on young'. I think Shakespeare said it first but I heard it a lot from my Mom. Now that I am older, I can see what she meant. Life is funny like that.
During my teens and early twenties, back in non-electronic days of sixties, we were focused on good looks. We spent bookoo dollars on make up and hair and spent hours 'working' on our tan. We weren't into physical part of looking good and fit. We focused on staying relaxed, looking tan and wealthy. We of Pepsi Generation were all about how you look not how you feel.
Anyway, I can now see meaning of saying 'youth is wasted on young'. All time and 'energy' I spent 'working' on my tan would have been better used for something lucrative or productive. My youth did not comprehend that concept and quite frankly, it was not in my level of need. However, like most every thing in life, it can be turned into a good learning experience.
As an adult, working at home and establishing my place on net as an entrepreneur takes a lot of time. I work 40 hours a week at my day job (no comments from peanut gallery about not quitting my day job, smile). Those 40 hours are nothing compared to time and energy spent working for myself. The net is a vast array of information with numerous highways pointing in various directions. In an effort to find out where you are going without a map, you can spend hours going in all different directions; and often we do.
