When you are poor, people ask you for money. You say, “I need it to pay rent.”
When you are rich, people ask you for money. What excuse will you give?
Are you a bad person if you reject a $10 donation request? What if you got hundreds of these requests a month?
People get disappointed, angry, or enraged when you turn them down.
- Where to donate? How much?
- How to offer help? How much?
- How to choose the next project? What’s your scope?
These are boundaries and constraints you set.
Invisible to others are there to save yourself first.
So that you have fuel to save the world.
