Wisdom Wednesday – Save the Salmon

Start at the Top

My mom told me to “Start conserving at the top. Don’t wait until youI get to the bottom to start saving.” This is a lesson she learned from someone with whom she worked. He told her that many people start trying to save something when it is near the bottom: i.e. dish detergent, toothpaste, etc. I would also add time to this list.

These words of wisdom made a big impression on me at a young age. Whenever, I heed them, I am able to save money and time. Whenever I didn’t, I wasted both. Recently, I purchased a piece of wild-caught salmon. It was a nice cut. I didn’t immediately cook or freeze the salmon. I left it in the fridge, too busy (so I thought) to do so. A few days later it was bad. I had to throw it out. Thus, losing a great piece of salmon, money and the time I spent earning the income to purchase it.

This makes me think about the many times we maybe trying to do something right when it is too late or near the bottom. In a recent interview with CNNMoney, Carlos Slim, Forbes Magazine second richest man in the world, said that people should not wait until they are 65 years and older to start living their lives. Start living that life you always wanted today. Why wait until you get to the bottom? Save the Salmon and Save Yourself! Let’s all Start at the TOP!!!
