I’d imagine it’s a great achievement to become the richest man in the world. A life dedicated to making more money then you could ever spend. I tell you, I believe it’s a greater thing to be headed down the Forbes List then up it.
I don’t know what runs through your mind when you hear this, Forbes Lists(maybe)… But I think, what a tough spot. I’ve got to say, I’m proud of Mr. Gates for giving his way to #2.
[Mr. Gates]He and Mr. Buffett, who runs Berkshire Hathaway, have pledged to give away a majority of their wealth by the time they die, as have 57 other wealthy people who have signed the Giving Pledge.
Kudos to the guys who signed the Giving Pledge. People who have pledged to give away their wealth to philanthropy.
Reframing this is essential.
I pray I grow in giving as I grow in gain.
How are we missing the point so? Why does #1 cause for so much attention?
