If Money Were No Object, What Would You Do With Your Time?
by Kris Parfitt - Nov, 2009
I love this question because the possibilities are endless. To me not having to be concerned about money leads my imagination everywhere! I’d be a philanthropist and travel to remote places to see what projects are best funded to better the world. I’d be a National Geographic photographer. I’d row across the Atlantic. I’d work for a season at the Palmer Station in Antarctica. I’d live in Peru and study the Inca architecture to...

Must. Get. Power. The good kind, of course. Agreed? To that end, here are some ideas for (nonviolent) ways to acquire power vis a vis your job: 1. Only do work you really truly enjoy.
