I know a guy whose stated goal is to become a billionaire. Everything he does surrounds that goal. I’m jealous of him. Not because I want to be a billionaire, but because satisfaction is something so singular is so difficult for me.

Everything I do I want to do again, but better. I don’t like to talk about my “accomplishments” because I’m too busy examining the cracks to gloat about the polish.

I’ve seen how money and fame destroy people. I don’t need the money or the fame.

I want the learning. I want to push myself. My satisfaction comes from being prepared for any situation.

I study people and what motivates them to act in often irrational ways in a commercial setting. This is a cheat sheet for my source of motivation.
