Once my cash flow was large enough
to cover my basic expenses
(and my basic expenses are less
than most people’s),
I stopped working
and building
for money.

Money became a scorecard
of progress,
not my purpose.
My purpose is to make a difference.

As Michael Lee-Chin,
one of Canada’s richest men
puts it
“At the end of the day,
all of us are seeking to build a legacy
that society can be proud of.
And you certainly won’t build a legacy
that society can be proud of
by doing what everyone else is doing.
If you have principles,
and if you’re thinking long term
and if you really believe
your principles are right,
wealth is secondary.”

What will you be remembered for?
