Ask yourself, “what would I want to be doing if I had $10 Million and only 10 years to live?” To bring it in to sharper focus you can ramp it up and ask, “If I had $20 Million and only 5 years left, how would I want to be spending my time?” If what you are actually doing is nowhere near your answer, it may be time for a change. It’s always possible to start doing things that at least point you in the right direction. Surely there is something you can engage in that would give you a taste, something that at least has the flavor of what you’d like to be doing even though you are lacking the resources at the moment to do it on a grand scale.

What’s your most precious resource, money or time? Well neither one actually, it’s your attention.

Think about money the same way you think about breathing. You don’t worry about your next breath, you just breathe in and out, you let it flow, there’s always enough. You can’t hoard the air, try to hang on to it, or hold your breath and not let any out.

When you finally take your very last breath, you’ll no longer have a need for money either. – Albert
