A well-lived life is not a tour of gas stations

Tim O’Reilly has a great post today clarifying his point about working on stuff that matters.

This was my favorite part:.

“I want to remind you that financial success is not the only goal or the only measure of success. It’s easy to get caught up in the heady buzz of making money. You should regard money as fuel for what you really want to do, not as a goal in and of itself. Money is like gas in the car – you need to pay attention or you’ll end up on the side of the road – but a well-lived life is not a tour of gas stations!”.
