What do you think? What’s your opinion?
“It depends,” is the first thing that comes to mind. Mostly the long hours are worth it. If.
If it drives your ego, your title, your salary, your corner office, your feeling of self-worth – then no.
If it drives your ability to make a difference: to expand your reach, your relevance, your impact – then yes.
The challenge, when you’re insanely busy, is to not confuse the two.
Any one need a quarter?
What the? Lizard breath?
Yes. Weird titles can be effective. Sometimes. Today’s post is about helping us understand our inherent resistance to change, even though we know change is the way.
What about providing links to other bloggers who are smarter, more successful and have way more readers than you?
What about it? Who cares, really? You may find Seth Godin more real and more something else. You may not.
And I don’t mean bullcrap phony real. We’re talkin’, “As real as the day is long” real.
Seth Godin’s thinking is brilliant. Have had a link to his blog on the right hand column for a long time. Seth Godin’s thinking inspires me, and countless others.

Anyone need a mint?
Rich Dad Poor Dad defined a term, and helped put perspective on the Rat Race cliche.
Basically, human nature teaches us to buy more or bigger (more expensive) things when we receive a promotion or a monetary raise from our job.
So, our expenses are never less than our earnings. We fail to save money, let alone invest money.
This cycle repeats itself until we die.
What really woke me up to this whole rat race thing was when Robert Kiyosaki said, “If you think your home is your biggest asset, you’re in trouble.”
Wait, that’s exactly what I’ve always thought. And now you’re telling me that it’s wrong?
