B is for Builder

I'm going to share a secret with you. Something that has been in the works for over 5 years, and still has a few years before it comes to fruition. As of the time of publishing this, there are only 1.5 people on the planet who know this secret. It's something that I think about almost every day and that drives me to be better.

But before I can do that, I need to set the stage for why this secret is so important to me.

What Ifs

What Ifs

I love what ifs. Especially when it comes to my own life. Here's a tiny example of some of the what ifs I think about from time to time.

At some point to the end of my college career, I started to realize there was this thing called the real world. I didn't know much about what I wanted to do when I graduated. The only thing that I really knew was that I wanted to be massively successful.

The Ultimate Goal for Work

My love for Quora has already been well documented, but for those of you who haven’t made the plunge to become full blown Quora addicts yet, I will share one of my answers from this morning.

The question was “What would you do with your time if you could afford to quit your job?”

Here is my answer

I think Dean Jackson has a wonderful perspective on this question. He says that one of his main goals is to “live like an artist with a $50,000 / month trust fund.” That way he could wake up every day and ask himself the question, “What would I like to do today?” and then focus on the thing that is most important to him for that day.

The goal is to get to the point where you don’t have to work, but you want to work. You want to work on things that you find incredibly rewarding and valuable. Most often this includes things that help others, improve something, make the world a better place, etc.

When you get to that point where you are able to truly focus all of your time and attention on a project that motivates and inspires you — like an artist — that is when you will produce your best work. If you ever have a chance to watch the “New Money Masters” video with Dean Jackson and Tony Robbins, I would highly suggest it.

I know it doesn’t answer the question of what I personally would do, but I think the point of this question is really to figure out what you would do. This answer and approach is definitely something I am working towards every single day.
