Life Power Tip #495

Put aside procrastination and excuses for doing nothing at all.

There is a famous compound interest story about the Emperor of China who offered the inventor of the game of chess one wish. The inventor replied that he wanted one grain of rice on square one of the chessboard, two grains on the second square, four on the third and so on through square sixty-four. The unsuspecting emperor agreed to the seemingly humble request. Yet, two raised to the sixty-fourth power is eighteen million trillion grains of rice, more than all the rice in China! Do you think your actions might only be a tiny drop in your bucket? Have you ever placed a bucket under a dripping tap overnight?
