A thought

If you were given one hundred million pounds, what would you do with it?

Stop and think about it. I think in a way your answer to this question can reveal what makes you truly unhappy (which are things you'll be trying to eliminate with the money) and what makes you truly happy (which are the things you'll be trying to obtain or increase).

Make a nice long list of things you would do.

Now look at it carefully. Can you do any of those things without the millions? What about those things makes you happy - supporting your family, new experience, comfort, excitement? Perhaps it's time to go after those things without waiting for the money to miraculously appear in your bank account.

I'd be a bit confused about what to do with that much money. House would be bought, parents mortgage would be paid off for them and I'd give them enough that they could both retire. Um. I'd give away quite a bit I think. Maybe a self funded PhD as I would still like to do research into schizophrenia. Lots of visiting friends. I'm not sure that there is anything that I'd eliminate with the money, I'm all about the obtaining!

What would you do with it?

Still thinking about that one... Will update soon! Definitely lots of educational stuff, like several degrees or skills courses.
