Famous Quotes - accomplishment and financial planning

Famous Quotes - accomplishment and financial planning

Hi! Many people equate financial success with accomplishment. But even though there is often a close relationship between the two, they are never one and the same thing.

In fact, there's an interesting, if somewhat terse, observation by Harry F. Banks concerning the states of getting rich and getting things done! You can check it out here.

Also, Thomas J. Watson correctly saw the link between accomplishing things of importance and the capacity to communicate both ideas and enthusiasm. His observation is also here.

What I love about this extremely democratic medium of blogging across cyberspace is that it allows each of us to vote with our mouse, either by clicking to something that is useful or away from something that is crass.

You know low value content when you see it, so I won't squander precious time focusing on things that are negative. Instead, let me point out a couple of very positive examples:

When it comes to communicating great ideas about cashflow and personal finance, a couple of bloggers who have plenty of enthusiasm are my friend Steve Mertz and a mysterious lady known only as Mapgirl. I suggest you check them both out.

Take care and please do try to pop back here when you can. Also, it would be great if you could later on take a couple minutes to leave a fun, brief comment about what you learnt from:

1. Harry F. Banks
2. Thomas J. Watson
3. Steve Mertz
4. Mapgirl

Ciao for now.

Warmest regards,
