“A (…) challenge for me is to make these executives realize that life is not all about the symbols of power and position; it’s not all about money. How can I make them discover that how they spend their time is more important than how they spend their money? They’ve to realize that status is an elusive entity, popularity and accident, wealth very fickle, and that only character endures. I try to point out to them that material things are not the most important things in life. What is truly important has to do with meaningful relationships, making a difference, and creating meaning. The great use of life is to spend it on something that will outlast us. What example do they want to set for others?”
