Just A Minute!

"Dinner time!" "Just a minute!"

"I'll just close my eyes... for... one... minute..."

"Hold on a minute, I just gotta go grab something."

"Can you...?" "Yeah, just a minute."

How many times have we said that? You know, "Just a minute, mom!"

And can you imagine, how many minutes that is once it adds up? Minutes you could've been using for something way better.

Like say, changing somebody's life?

Do you believe you can change a someones life in 60 seconds? Cuz Wess Stafford does:

If you live to 80 years old, you'd have spent 42 048 000 minutes on earth. Seems like a lot, but if you really think about it, I've already used almost 7 884 000 of those minutes!

Every single minute you have is a precious one.

So come on, just a minute, that's all it takes.

Change the world. :)

Saw this video today, and I couldn't help but think of Dr. Stafford's book.

Made me think of Just A Minute for two reasons:

1. Every minute is a precious one, people.

2. The book's about how you can change the life of a child in a minute... But has a child ever changed YOUR life in "just a minute"? I think the girl in the video changed that man's life... with just a wave. And all it took was... Yep, just a minute. :)
