Money don't get everything it's true, from John, Paul, George & Ringo

Sometimes it takes major life events to help us put things into true perspective. I’ve always been a big believer in pursuing things that bring you great joy and satisfaction because some day you may wake up and be 50 years old and say to yourself, “Wow, I’m 50 years old. Sure wish I had taken that trip. Or, wish I would have taken that job. Or, wish……”

No regrets I say. By the way, nothing wrong with 50. But you get my point.

So here are quotes we’ve all heard:

“Live every day as if it were going to be your last; for one day you’re sure to be right.”
Harry Morant

“Don’t be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of.”
Charles Richards

“As you grow older, you’ll find the only things you regret are the things you didn’t do.”– Zachary Scott
“If you wait, all that happens is that you get older.”Larry McMurtry

But sometimes we get hung up on little things. For example money. We are presented with a unique opportunity. An opportunity that does not come along often. Maybe an opportunity we may not see again. Yet we look too much at the money. We can’t see the forest for the trees. Money can’t bring job satisfaction. Employees are most satisfied when they find their work interesting. Using your talents, engaging in challenging projects, and diversity keep work interesting.

Sometimes it takes a short term monetary concession that will soon be forgotten to secure that unique opportunity. Getting hung up on money can lead to regrets later.

More quotes:
“Money has never made man happy, nor will it, there is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more of it one has the more one wants.”
Benjamin Franklin

“Money was never a big motivation for me, except as a way to keep score. The real excitement is playing the game.” 
Donald Trump

“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.” 
Maya Angelou
