What if Money Was No Object?
“My goal wasn’t to make a ton of money. It was to build good computers.”
This video by “Tragedy and Hope” is beautiful as it gets straight to the point. Much of my experience with young and ambitious people has shown me that it is not so much about what you do, or how you do it, but really that it is about “why” you do it. Watch:
Unfortunately our education system fails to produce people who know “why” they want to do what they want to do. Often you hear no more than superficial reasons like “I want to get rich”, “I want to travel the world”, …that obviously lack the substance to serve as a truly fulfilling goal in life.
What are you passionate about?
If you wake up 10 days in a row, wondering why you are currently doing what you do, then you haven’t found something that truely motivates you. Or it is time to move on. You see, life is to short, to spend your time doing things you don’t really feel like doing. Life is too short to fulfil other people’s expectations and not your own. Life is to short to never take a shot at your dreams. So lead the way.
“Wealth flows from energy and ideas.”
The title “What if Money Were No Object?” calls upon you to open your eyes to a world full of opportunities and ideas that go beyond “earning money”. Yes, money is important, but it does not create wealth… energy and ideas do. If you are passionate about something, you will find others who are passionate about it. And if you are good at it, then others will want to learn from you.
What would you do, if money were no object?
