Most of us don’t actually know what it is we actually want.
So, we begin to look around and rely on others to tell us what it is we are supposed to want.
Status, artifacts, symbols…
Over time, we accumulate some of this stuff but learn that isn’t what makes us happy.
And because we still don’t know what we want, we haven’t committed to anything that will create the conditions that we say we want—to make our promises and commitments become a reality.
If you were to make a list of things that actually make you happy. You’ll find that the majority is spent with other people doing remarkable things and solving interesting problems.
You don’t need money to be happy.
