I use to feel guilty for dreaming about what I might do if I won the lottery. I’ve entered the Powerball each time it’s ever hit a record milestone. I think this will be my 3rd drawing to enter. If I win, I will have a 33% win rate that I would take to the bank. In anticipation of the worlds largest payout ever, an anticipated $1,300,000,000, I went out and bought a ticket for tonight's’ drawing. In doing so I couldn’t help but consider what I might do if I all of a sudden had benjamin’s comin’ out the yin/yang.
In light of my impending victory, I think it’s okay to dream. Of course naysayers can go to extremes to talk about how the lottery makes poor people poorer and how 1,000 winners would do more for the economy than one winner. Perhaps. But perhaps dreaming really solidifies what we, as individuals hold most dear. So…when I win my 1.3 Billion I’m not afraid to admit this is how it would be spent.
Let’s work with the big numbers. Let’s say the lump sum payout is $600,000,000. Then let’s just say after taxes, lawyers, financial planners, and my tithe I have $240,000,000 in my bank account. I enjoy work too much so I would stay with the day job temporarily and transition away. So let’s just dream…here’s my top ten thoughts as I think them.
I’m not affording myself the opportunity to edit or change my mind on these. This is raw, and on reflection, there is use of the word “BUY”. You do the same, don't overthink it, just let your thought process flow and see what surfaces.
