Is Money The Most Important Thing?
On another TV show, Becker, Ted Danson played a doctor with a dead-end practice in the Bronx. It was evident that beneath the gruff exterior he was a decent man. When asked if he'd quit if he won the lottery, Becker/Danson answered, "In the middle of an operation." Yet he sacrificed time and again to help others. He wasn't in it for the money.
At some time, I suggest that each of us should ask the question, "Why do we do (whatever we do for a living)?" Do we do it for money? Do we do it for the satisfaction of a job well done? Do we do it for another reason?
What drives you? If you won the lottery, would you quit your job? I'd really like to know.
NOTE: I have a guest blog about Periods of Silence at the ACFW blog today--hope you'll click through, read it, and leave a comment. Many thanks.
