The other day I updated my status on Facebook…
“If money were no object to you, what would you do with the rest of your life?”
I have asked this question of myself a lot lately, and I was curious how others would answer. I would be doing different things with my life, and pursuing dreams I have had for a while… but then there’s the money factor. I often wonder if I had made different decisions 10 years ago, where would my family be today… we would be the same people no doubt, but with some different experiences.. Then I realize I can’t dwell on who we would be IF, and now I need to focus on who we CAN be IF… we can make money not matter! Money will always have its place, but can we live life that uses money as a means to a specific end instead of how we filter every decision?
I’m a practical guy, so I realize this is a difficult question with many layers and there is no simple way to approach the money subject… sometimes I wonder if the “American Dream” has sucked the life out of people! I know a few people with money, and some of them are so happy with life they can’t stand it… but other people I know with money feel just as stuck as the rest of us. Often, the more money you make, the more money you need, and the viscous circle goes round and round!
So how about it… If money were no object to you, what would you DO with the rest of your life? Discuss!
