Sainted Dad lived on psychic income. He was always trying to
invent something or launcha
new business.(我也是啊 !)
He had large ups and downs, (這不是說我‧還是誰?)
and at times we would be now
classified as below the poverty line.
Not that I knew that as a kid. Mostly,Dad
lived in his dreams,
though often alcoholic ones,(這一點不同) of a better future,
never gave up. In his mid-70s he was re-inventing the
small printing press in
his garage, with plans for national
production. It was only after we had to take
his car from him
in his mid-80s that he quit.
It was a very sad day.(這點不一樣、我們從來沒有困苦的
I now know
we had not just taken his car, but far more than that:
his dreams, his psychic
.....Why I Am Optimistic About the Future
I am optimistic by nature. An entrepreneur friend of mine
gave me a term that
I have grown to love. She calls it
"psychic income." It's that bit of hoped-for
that is in our minds, that drives some of us, inflicted with
entrepreneurial gene, to do the next deal, make the next
big plan, scheme yet
another scheme to finally hit whatever
counts as the big one for each of us.
much better would our life be, how our problems
would go away, if only this one
thing would come about!
It has not yet become real income, yet we live and act
if it is almost real. We can feel it getting ready to happen.
It is still in
our heads, this psychic income.
Yet it is in some ways real for us.
For some, I should note, psychic income is not just about
money. It may be
about the next promotion or the next
big discovery. For some of us, it is just
having our ideas
accepted and validated in the court of human opinion.
simply what drives us......
