In the age of unfettered capitalism, we must stop and ask:
Is this about making money or making a difference?
It’s possible to do both. More importantly, we must understand, not everything we do needs to improve the bottom line.
The house you buy doesn’t need to be a good investment. It’s about establishing roots, being part of a community, having a space to raise a family, to make memories…
The business you start doesn’t need to be featured in Fortune.
Money is one axis. One unit of measurement. There are far better ways to measure success. Act accordingly.
