In 2006, Warren Buffett pledged to give away almost his entire fortune to charities. He is adamant about not funding monuments to himself – no Warren Buffett buildings or halls.
He says, “I know people who have a lot of money. And they get testimonial dinners and hospital wings named after them. But the truth is that nobody in the world loves them. When you get to my age, you’ll measure your success in life by how many of the people you want to have love you actually do love you. That’s the ultimate test of how you’ve lived your life.”
Isn’t that interesting how a multi-BILLIONAIRE says NOTHING about money in his definition of success?
And yet, how much time do most of us spend obsessing about making more money and all the things we want to do with that money when we make it?
