“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
I want to build a successful career. For me that means success with a small firm where I am able either to run the firm or otherwise gain autonomy over an area within the company. I want to make sure, however, that I also have time for my family. I am looking forward to many picnics with my wife and soccer games, tennis matches, and skiing trips with my boys. Similarly, I hope that my love of travel and of adventure never dies. I will visit Machue Pichu, raft in Chile, and hike in Nepal. Finally, I hope to one day make good on my yearning to give back to society. I do not yet know what this means yet but have visions of sharing my millions (if only I am so lucky) or of starting a new, innovative venture to help give others the opportunities that I have enjoyed. Most of all, I want to have fun – not just at the end of my life but throughout every day of it.
