I blame my continuing semi-impoverished state on a number of factors. First is probably laziness, followed by a willingness to spend money on ephemeral, expensive stuff (helicopter flying lessons, anyone?).
But there is also another problem: I am a hopeless generalist. A dilettante.
All of the best entrepreneurs are somewhat obsessive. They get one idea and follow it through. I get one idea and follow it until the next good idea...about 5 minutes later.
For instance, here are some of the things in the news that have been fascinating me lately:
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch
Giant Falling Iceballs
Sonar-related whale deaths
I guess I have concern for the ocean. And other stuff. But this is just part of the list of the things I wonder about every day. Maybe I will never be super rich. But I will always have something to think about.
What are YOU obsessing about? You know, news stories and articles that you can't stop yourself from clicking on?
