Everything is speeding up in these days - a well filled bag* is not counting anymore, it can even hinder you in getting ahead. Straight ahead, no way back, the aim is the aim, the journey is a loss of time.
You can neither lose time, nor win it. But you can take time for yourself and other people. Getting ahead has nothing to do with, money, technology - the first step to getting ahead is standing still and wondering.
Thoughts by a friend.
*in German we use 'a well filled bag' as a figure of speech for having a good education.
