I’d like to cap off almost a whole week of posts that basically encouraged SPENDING [AJC: heck, somebody’s gotta kick-start the economy!] with something completely different (well, actually, quite similar!):
My thanks to blogrdoc for pointing me to this very neat video for my Video on Sundays series …
It’s very entertaining – and from one of the world’s true [musical] geniuses … the financial point is in the 1st minute …watching the rest is optional (but, highly recommended!):
In case you missed it, here is the key quote in that first minute of the video:
The instrument isn’t really that important. It is a means to an end. In other words, you don’t use music to play the violin. You use the violin to play music.
You really need to stop and think about this …
Now, here is the financial parallel – one that I tried to articulate in one of my very early posts:
The bank balance isn’t really that important. It is a means to an end. In other words, you don’t use life to increase your bank balance. You use your bank balance to play at life.
Musical/Financial food for thought?
