The Grand Pursuit


Great phrase from this interview with rags-to-riches investor George Soros:

CNN: “Have your billions made you happy?”

Soros: “I’m reasonably happy, but the money’s not the point. It’s an indication that I’ve succeeded in the grand adventure of understanding reality.”

I love the way he puts that.

For him it’s investing. For others it’s songwriting. For me it’s creating businesses that help musicians.

It all feels like a grand pursuit to understand the world, doesn’t it?

What’s your grand pursuit?
