Today was the first paid holiday of the year. I worked. I figured I can always use some extra money. It surprises me how many people pass the opportunity.
Last October, I laid my motorcycle down on a rainy ride home from work. The bike was a total loss. So today I put the equivalent amount of the money I earned today down on another motorcycle.
Tomorrow, I’ll complete the deal and have my new (er) motorcycle by end of week. (Stay tuned for details on that later).
My point? Working this morning and buying the motorcycle had no direct connection. I could’ve done either without the other.
But working this morning, and knowing that the extra money made from the simple sacrifice of giving up some time on a day I would’ve wasted anyway could be used for something I really wanted; it made the down payment technically free.
Always take the OT.
