Am currently reading The Education of Millionaires: Everything You Won’t Learn in College About How To Be Succesful, on Instapundit’s recommendation (how much money do use suppose Reynolds has made Amazon over the years). It’s maybe the book I’ve been looking to read for a long time.
Money quote, on the Art of Earning a Living:
The Art of Earning a Living requires a great deal of self-inquiry into what, exactly the difference you want to make is, and also a lot of creative, entrepreneurial problem-solving to figure out how you could make decent money while making that difference.
In other words, the dichotomy between earning and creating is the falsest of all dichotomies. True creation invariably creates value.
