I went to see Hamilton recently and it was a fantastic show – I highly recommend it.
One of the things that struck me most was a scene talking about the central character, and how he could never be satisfied. He was a flawed hero, but ultimately the source of his decline (in the show anyway) seemed to me to stem from this.
I’ve made this mistake myself too, becoming too focused at times on our financial position and trying to build this at the expense of focussing on the people I’m doing this for.
I talk more about that here, and how we help people overcome that.
