My boss, a successful businessman, says he works for the money … but his eyes light up when he talks about agile.
Made me think of this:
Mark Albion, Author of the book "Making a Life, Making a Living" cites a study by Srully Blotnick:
"A study of business school graduates tracked the careers of 1,500 people from 1960 to 1980. From the beginning, the graduates were grouped into two categories. Category A consisted of people who said they wanted to make money first so they could do what they really wanted to do later after they took care of their financial concerns. Those in category B pursued their interests first, sure that the money eventually would follow.
What percentage fell into each category? Of the 1,500 graduates in the survey, the money-now category A's comprised 83 percent or 1,245 people. Category B risk takers made up 17 percent, 255 graduates.
After 20 years, there were 101 millionaires in the group. Only one came from category A, 100 from category B.
