If money was no object, what would you do with your time on this planet?

This is something worth pondering for a second.

If money was not an issue, what would you do with the time you have on this planet?

Tortoise yarns, abi? ["Tortoise yarns" is a term we just discovered at work; it's when someone says something really deep; Ogidan is currently our lead tortoise smiley].

I often toy with people's minds with this question. Especially when having a chat with a potential new hire. For me, it's an attempt to gauge if the person can connect with the role on a higher level. To see if the role brings the individual a step closer to his personal objectives. I find it amusing that any time this question is posed, the subject usually pauses and stammers for a bit. Maybe because they are shy to reveal their deepest aspirations, or because it's something they have never given much thought to. Whatever the case, it's an important question for us all to consider.

For me, if money was no object and I could develop the relevant skills, I'll like to be a cross between a monk and mad scientist locked in a lab somewhere immersed in spiritual "tins" & inventing some extremely mad Doctor Who s**t, then find a way to serve it to the whole world. And when that's done, invent some more mad s**t just for fun.

How about you? If you didn't have to worry at all about money, what would you do with your life?
