Monetary wisdon

Steve Pavlina, who does a self-help blog of sorts, made a post about blogging and making money from whatever it is you post on the Web. Interesting stuff, but here's the thing that struck me the most:

"But money is only a means to an end, not an end in itself. Making a positive contribution to the world is a lot more important to me than money. Money can be useful in achieving this objective, but human relationships are far more important. The funny thing is that the less I rely on money, the more of it I seem to have... While many entrepreneurs pursue money for the purpose of becoming wealthy, I chose a different route. I sought to earn money for the purpose of increasing my freedom. I don’t want to get myself stuck in a pattern of working for money, so I’m constantly turning down opportunities to make money that would restrict my freedom."

Wise words. See, I haven't been lazy the last couple of years, just exercising my freedom. ;)
