What is the goal?
So many people can not begin to answer that question.
- Why do you work in the first place?
- What is the goal?
- What are your priorities?
- What are you striving after?
- Is there a stopping point?
- Or, a point to pivot and spend your limited life how you choose?
He is 70 and makes $300,000 per year.
He could have easily retired ten years ago, yet he goes to work every day to do things he hates.
And with all of that, how many of us still get our own priorities screwed up?
“It’s time to sit down and think about what’s truly important to you and then take steps to forsake the rest. Without this, success will not be pleasurable, or nearly as complete as it could be. Or worse, it won’t last. This is especially true with money. If you don’t know how much you need, the default easily becomes: more. And so without thinking, critical energy is diverted from a person’s calling and toward filling a bank account.”
