The next time you wonder if the little things matter remember this . . .
Teyba Erkesso won the 2010 Boston Marathon.She beat Tatyana Pushkareva by 3 seconds.(That is probably her in the top right hand corner of the picture).We measure time mostly in days, hours or minutes.We go on vacation in 8 days.I have to work today for 8 hours.I am going to exercise today for 30 minutes.The little things we measure in seconds.I am going to count to 3 and . . .
Second place for the Boston Marathon isn’t bad.You earn $75,000.First place EARNS DOUBLE.3 little seconds were worth $75,000.
The 3rd place finisher beat 4th place by only one small second.She earned $15,000 more.
