I had my annual review today and I was asked what I really strive for.

I had to think a bit. There’s the obvious money aspect. Everyone (well, most at least) does things to get money. Money makes the world go round.

Once the basics are taken care of, what do I want.

“Knowledge.”

I don’t necessarily use what I know to move anything forward. I don’t monetize it.

Why? I d0n’t really know, honestly. I guess there’s a bit of my self-sufficiency leaning in there, but at the same time, there’s no real reason for me to be interested in it all.

Learning for the sake of learning I suppose.
