46. A wonderful montage and message

I didn't read it, as some posters apparrently have, as an exhortation to be idle, but rather a rejection of using more more more power/money/image as a metric for success.

It really resonates with me because I realize now, how much wisdom I had at a much younger age as I chose my career path. I wanted no part of the rat-race; win, lose, or draw. I got much static for this. I was pushed and suggested to push for more more more, but as time went on I saw those of my peers that did so were just miserable people that just made more money than I did.
