Little things add up

Thank you, Rabbi, for yet another great piece of advice. G-d bless you!

Little things add up

Alan, you better stop talking of the possibility of getting charged for the air we breathe. Since breathing is a universal necessity, some stupid genious (valid antithesis) may develop a way to actually measure--and charge for--consumption.

Some examples with torah that I have done

I'm a baal tshuvah and hope to stay one continualy improving myself, the mitzahs I do, and the torah I learn. I started almost 4 years ago doing serious torah study (to actually learn). I read articles on aish, chabad, and other sites, then next year I started doing Rashi with the parsha, then the next year I started to do kitzur schulan aruch, and nach yomi. I will soon finish going over all of nach, and after that my plan is to go to complete the mishniyot. I'm also planning on starting daf yomi when the new cycle starts up. But because of constantly learning new things I see some people who were born religous, or who have been religous a little longer than me, but I'm actually becoming more knowledgeable than them.

Suim/Completion of Mishniyos

its true, the small things do add up, R.Moishe Finestein completed learning all the mishniyos from walking from his place of praying to the bimah from just getting torah aliyahs!
