what matters (Jello Edition)
Some of us are completely backwards
we think what we do at work
is more important than what we do at home
that the clothes we wear are more important than the people we meet
some of us mistakenly think that money is more important than hope
and that a mistake is worse than indifference.
and that being paid to do nothing is better than doing anything.
The most important thing is knowing what matters.
When my brother and I was 8 and 9 years old, respectively, we spent the morning creating a dessert for our parents anniversary. Jello with cookies inside. My mom explained to us later that it really wasn’t a good idea to put cookies in jello because they get soggy and disgusting as the jello hardens.
But my parents knew what mattered.
On their anniversary night, they ate it anyway.Explore posts in the same categories: A VC, beach browser, blog herald, copy protection, dandelions, designer planet, family, good, hoi polloi, home, indifference, Jackson West, jello, Leigh, Liz Strauss, mistake, music, socath, work, wvil corporations
