Slowdown a Moment and Think About What’s Really Important…

The image below was passed along to me from an old friend in the trading world. It makes me stop and think… are my wife and I, and our kids, doing enough to help others and leave the world in a better place? I’d like to believe we are. In fact, Michelle and I have made it more of a concerted effort in 2019 to try and do more to help those who need it most. Oscar Hammerstein once said, “There is a very real relationship, both quantitatively and qualitatively, between what you contribute and what you get out of this world.” Unfortunately, as political views and algorithms continue to divide your nation, it’s easy to get tripped up in grabbing for what you believe is yours. Just remember, it’s not about what you get from this world, but what you give back and leave behind to better it for others. As you can see in the pic below, having the number 24 suggests he’s an elite runner. Holding the young man’s hand suggests he’s an elite human being! I challenge all of us who have become “elite” in our respective fields to not lose sight of those who need our help… Just something to think about and a quality we all want to pass along to our children. Hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend!
