Money can’t buy love, good kids or health.
Every once in a while I would get a client that was so fixated on making money they let the rest of their lives go to shit.
They reminded me of a gambling addict glued to a slot machine. Thinking that if only they could do more and make more everything else would fall in place.
Instead of patting themselves on the back about how far they’ve come, they were obsessed with how far ahead everyone else was. Always looking out instead of looking in.
What you value and how you measure your success needs to change if you want a different result.
This doesn’t mean making less money. It just means finding a smarter way to do it.
