- What did you want to be when you grew up (NBA Baskeball Player, Astronaut)
- What would you be doing now if you had all the money you wanted.
My answer was relatively boring. I honestly don't think I would be doing things much differently. I might be doing it with more style, but I think I would still be doing what I'm basically doing, leading technology teams. I love working in technology. I love the challenge of trying to solve a complex problem. I love the strategy of trying to put together a winning formula of business and technology. Now if I had all the money I wanted, I'm sure I would be running my own company rather than being a little bit further down the chain that I currently am (although I'm closer to the top, my boss' boss is the owner/founder, than I have ever been) but I would fundamentally still be doing what I'm doing now.
I also would probably be driving a nicer car, and probably writing this from the Bahamas in my yacht, but I honestly don't know if I would choose to do too much differently. Perhaps I'm just one of the very few lucky people out there. How about you, what would you be doing if money wasn't an issue?
Travel and experience different cultures.ReplyDelete
1. When I was younger, I wanted to be a ninja when I grew up.ReplyDelete
2. If I had all of the money I wanted I would buy a house in Mammoth or Big Bear for the winter, then do some traveling during the Summer, and buy/work on classic cars, and maybe start my own design firm with a couple of old co-workers. Or I would train to become a ninja.
Scratch that house in Big Bear, I would buy my own town instead.ReplyDelete
I seriously doubt that you would be in the Bahamas on your yacht. You just don't have that in you.ReplyDelete
Travel is a pretty common one and one that kept coming up during our exercise. Not so interesting for me, I'm much more of a home body.ReplyDelete
Move to Italy and teach English.ReplyDelete
Assuming my retirement is set, I would fix up my house, attend every Sox game, and give some money to my church.ReplyDelete
I would buy an island and change it into an exclusive resort so that it keeps making me money.ReplyDelete
Go see the next Olympics in the UK and buy a second home in Ireland.ReplyDelete
