  • How do I get out of debt and stay out of debt?
  • Which charity or cause do I choose to make my donation?
  • How do I decide where to volunteer?
  • How can our family plan a volunteer vacation?
  • How can I save money for retirement?

An Excerpt from Your Mark on the World - Chapter 30 - Measuring Success

Having considered all of these people who do so much good in the world and all of this
financial advice intended to help you organize yourself to give more and do more, I’d like to
give you some ideas about how to keep score, how to measure your success.

Let me begin by saying that the least important measure of your real success in life is
your net worth. Money’s only value is the good we can do with it. If your net worth is large
enough to allow you to give time and energy to your cause then it is enough. So much the
better if you can leave a few dollars to support your cause when you go.

As important as I think it is for you to give to your charity, what you have given should
not be compared to anyone else. The only relevant measure of your giving is to compare
what you have given to what you could have given. If you feel you could have given more,
then give more now. It is never too late to start doing more good.
