Achieving wealth and happiness
I just ran across this quote when reading a listserv exchange about patents related to the Semantic Web:
Wealth, like happiness, is never attained when sought after directly. It comes as a by-product of providing a useful service.
- Henry Ford
Time to start focusing on services that are in fact useful.
That is in fact what I try to do, but it sure seems that a lot of ventures are filled with noise and randomness that is of only very marginal utility.
