If you had a billion dollars, what would you want to do with your life? What would provide long-term fulfillment for you?

What do you instinctively answer? Your answer can help you realize what you want to do with your time, what you value and what truly interests you. When we are not living to earn the next buck, to receive external gratification through money and hence power, we are living authentically. What does your answer tell you about yourself?

This question helps remind me what I would want to do regardless of money. I would still want to spend ample amounts of time with my family and friends. I would still want to dance like no-one’s watching, to jump through ocean waves, to laugh with my kids and to savour scrumptious food. I would still want to dedicate myself to helping the world become a more equitable place.

What would you enjoy doing each and every day if the societal fabrication of money and wealth was irrelevant to you?
