Enough

Two stories:

  1. John D. Rockefeller, at the height of his incredible personal wealth, was asked "How much is enough?" His answer: "One more dollar."

  2. At a New York party given by a billionaire, someone told Joseph Heller that their host, a hedge fund manager, had made more money in a single day than Heller had earned from his wildly popular novel Catch-22 over its whole history. Heller responded, “Yes, but I have something he will never have … enough.”

I have to share something that I'm not proud of. During the Super Bowl (when our Tampa Bay Bucs did us proud), I ate 3 more slices of pizza than I really needed. Please understand: I enjoy pizza. I really enjoy football. Combine the two and it's a recipe--no, a menu--for disaster. At one point Alice looked over at my plate and said, "You ate them all?" Yep.


Enough.

On a more serious note, some people know when they've had enough (meaning "too much"): enough abuse, enough pain, enough frustration or disappointment. If you saw my blog last Friday (Truth & Freedom), you read that some people come to the realization that they are "sick and tired of being sick and tired." Dr. Wayne Dyer strikes an even tougher tone: “Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.”


Enough.
