I was reading a WSJ article on the death of Tony Hsieh, founder of Zappos. It makes me wonder how someone with all the achievements and accumulation had so much emptiness within. The article cites drug usage, alcohol consumption, and other methods Tony was experimenting with himself.
How much wealth or professional success matters when we are broken? What was Tony’s emptiness?
I have learned in the hard way of my 35+ years life journey: build relationships. I still screwup in many instances. I am still learning. I do have some friends, mentors who are around me, kicking me and cheering for me. If you don’t have one: better to spend your time on it instead of running after money. Self does not care about your bank deposits but the emptiness within yourself.
