Had a quick email exchange with a friend — I liked the roadmap he rattled off quickly:
1) Make money anyway possible
2) Create something of value that makes money
3) Help others (in whatever way you’d like to contribute to society)
There are ways to make money out there that aren’t glamorous — and although we may not be contributing to society by doing them, they can give us the means to our end … and so it’s just an interim step to helping others.
