Aside

Getting over ourselves!

We in Silicon Valley try and buy happiness.
We believe money brings freedom.
We believe seeking happiness through security will fill us up.
We believe seeking happiness through status will fill us up.
We believe seeking happiness through power will fill us up.
We believe seeking happiness through posessions will fill us up.
But as my own life story will attest, it does not.
But you know what does?
There’s no one answer, right. But I hope you know yours.
When we recognize our place in the world and that money is not the key, then we can can focus on the things that matter. For me that list includes those things that allow each of us to operate from our gifts, to give and play, and love the things we get a chance to create and the people we get a chance to co-create with.
Let’s get over ourselves, people. We don’t need a fancy car or a cool watch to be happy.
