    What's your motivation to do things if you don't need to make money.

    NOTABLE! MINDSET 
    This is the question I ask about many things. But it’s not a bad question, it’s just that you get less positive answers. I’ve noticed this amongst many of my friends with hobbies and sports. Things you loved in the past you no longer want to do. Many times it is been there done that many times...

    What's your motivation to do things if you don't need to make money.

    I’ve felt this way over a year ago. Remember my original post was from January 2021. I actually think it is the opposite effect because now I have a goal to aim at. Whereas before I was aimlessly looking at real estate anywhere just to buy more. There are many things that want but can’t...

    What's your motivation to do things if you don't need to make money.

    NOTABLE! MINDSET 
    I really think that my own wants and needs just disappeared once I could afford them. When I look back the past few years. It's like I just realized that I can have all the stuff I've ever wanted and I just went out and bought them all. For example, I was driving a 2005 4Runner. I saw a really...

    What's your motivation to do things if you don't need to make money.

    I think the question being asked is, what is the point? And I've asked this question years ago which is how I got to this point. Years ago, I thought if I took $250k and bought myself a vacation home in Colorado, what benefit did my $250k create? If I let my friends use the vacation home for 10...

    What's your motivation to do things if you don't need to make money.

    NOTABLE! MINDSET 
    I was keeping score in my head. I knew we were losing. I cared, but nobody else did. And because of that I played down to the level that they were playing at. I didn't like playing with no consequence. I didn't view it as practice, but maybe I should have. I actually have never viewed a pickup...

    What's your motivation to do things if you don't need to make money.

    NOTABLE! MINDSET 
    Let me clear this up. By no means do I do nothing all day. However, what I call nothing is what many call a full day. I can get more done in one day than most people in a week. That is because I am very efficient. I am also very good at managing processes. However, this doesn't mean that if I...

    This is something I've thought about and am doing for some friends right now. I don't think I want to get into paid coaching again.

    NOTABLE! MINDSET 
    Your response elicited a memory for me. Many years ago I went to play basketball at a church league. When I got there, I found out that they didn't keep score. They told me it was because they were playing for fun and didn't want to anyone getting upset. Our team sucked, I know they weren't...

    What's your motivation to do things if you don't need to make money.

    NOTABLE! MINDSET 
    I used to think this. Grow my business to $50M, have multiple offices and 50 employees. But no more. I'm happy where my business is at. I actually love the lounge around and do nothing days now. But more importantly, my "everything to do" daily list is like 1-2 items long and I get them done...

    NOTABLE! MINDSET 
    We can all do more, but I don't think you should be blindly doing the MOST you can do either. I'm not sitting here saying that I'm just not going to use my current skills. But I need to pick a direction to use them. I can go very fast and far, but in the wrong direction. I have time to think...

    NOTABLE! MINDSET 
    Speaking of discomfort... One interesting thing that I've never experienced in my life before is learning something that carries a great physical risk. This past summer @JasonR and I took mountain biking lessons because we are trying to get better at the technical aspects of it. We have these...

    What's your motivation to do things if you don't need to make money.

    NOTABLE! MINDSET 
    When I made that comment, I didn't mean that I don't want to do anything difficult any more. What I really meant was that the challenge needs to have a payoff that I'm willing to work hard for. If I have just given up. I wouldn't be here trying to find my next new thing. In the past, that...

    What's your motivation to do things if you don't need to make money.

    NOTABLE! MINDSET 
    I don't think that I'm unhappy. I am very grateful for what I have and how my life is going. I think most people would love to be in the situation that I'm in. And I'm not asking this question from the side of unhappiness. I'm more asking it from the side of 'yeah I've accomplished my goals'...

    What's your motivation to do things if you don't need to make money.

    NOTABLE! MINDSET 
    I have thought about something similar. Since my passion is helping dogs, I've thought about starting a really cheap doggy daycare, or a company that builds dog houses that makes no profit. The problem is that I don't want to start another business. I think much of this comes from already...

    What's your motivation to do things if you don't need to make money.

    NOTABLE! MINDSET 
    Thanks I’ll check out the book. I’ve been waking up earlier, but mainly because I’ve been sleeping earlier. Still no reason to get out of bed. Lol Side note, because I intermittent fast and don’t eat breakfast, it makes it much easier to stay in bed. I think in the past when I was working out...

    Yes, those were my goals also. But I’ve reached them, so I am searching for what is meaningful afterwards.

    What's your motivation to do things if you don't need to make money.

    NOTABLE! MINDSET 
    I just don’t have any interest in starting a new hobby. Or even learning something just to learn it. One thing I really do love is fish tanks and Koi ponds. However, because I don’t live in any of my homes for all 12 months I cannot take care of anything like this. With mountain biking, I have...

    NOTABLE! MINDSET 
    I think that is my current problem. I do not have an answer. I believe that I would like to start another business. However, the purpose of this business cannot be to make money. So I’m looking for another purpose to start a business now. However my future thinking me is thinking that it is too...

    NOTABLE! MINDSET 
    So I'm bumping this thread because it is a year later and I honestly don't have any new answers. This past year was great for me in terms of money. Ecommerce business valuations went to 3.5x to 6-7x. In addition, purchasing a home in Las Vegas turned out to be a great move, as real estate...

    Can shiny object syndrome be good?

    IDEA 
    I don't think this is shiny object syndrome. If you start this next business, let's say it is a youtube channel and then in 3 months, you decide you don't want to do youtube and move to another, that would be shiny object syndrome. Right now, you have a rational reason for starting another...
