The Greenspan Manifesto Part 1
Unless you are…
…living on a beach drinking out of coconuts, your kids’ college is prepaid including price increases for the next 10 years, you upgrade when you fly and your hotel room always has the best ocean view, you have the safest and most environmentally sound vehicle available, you sleep like a baby, you eat only farm grown, organic food and you never look at the prices, you are healthy and you have plenty of time to exercise, you can afford the finest healthcare and if needed, you can be with loved ones in time of need, you spend an inordinate amount of time with your spouse and kids and you visit your parents more than they expect, you have everything you need and most of what you want, you are truly happy and satisfied with your life’s achievements, you spend a tremendous amount of time and money on helping others and solving big local and world problems, you absolutely adore your family, you love and respect yourself, and your biggest frustration is that you wish you had more years to live to do more towards leaving the world a better place than you found it…
…then, no, you are not doing enough.Eric David Greenspan, Chief Clever Officer, 74 Systems
