British philosopher and thinker Alan Watts asks the question, “What would you like to do if money were no object?”
It’s a question many of us have considered, but few have truly act upon. “Yeah, that’s nice, but I have to pay the bills,” is one common reply. “I have responsibilities,” is another.
If you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you will spend your life completely wasting your time. You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living. That is, to go on doing things you don’t like doing.
Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing than a long life spent in a miserable way.
Life can be so much more when we don’t let money decide our direction and purpose in life.
