Money is Fuel

Money is Fuel


Money is fuel.
And fuel is very important. I think money is, there’s nothing wrong with money. It’s just we have to understand the purpose of money. So the company is the car
and money is the fuel. So I don’t care how amazing your
just cause is and how wonderful your culture is. If you have no money
you don’t go anywhere. You might have bought the most beautiful car … You got no gas,
you got nowhere to go. The purpose of a car is not to buy gas. The purpose of a company
is not to make money, The purpose of a car is to go somewhere and fuel helps you get there. The purpose of a company is to accomplish something, to advance a greater cause,
to contribute to society. And money will help you get there. Very necessary, very important but it’s not the reason
we bought the car in the first place.

    Money does not have my permission, nor my authority to have value or meaning in my life. When you have nothing and can burn $100 bill into thin air and not even flinch, that is true mastery of your domain. All it is is a monetary system. That’s it. Never give it power over you. We’re all individually worth more then all the money in existence.

    "The purpose of a company is not to make money. The purpose of a company is to advance a greater cause, to contribute to society … and money helps you get there." – In an ideal world? Yes. In real life those with money only help society for the tax breaks, few would do so simply because they could afford it.

    Since 1971, money has completely been voided, currencies are now points either hardly or too easily attributed and registered in a ledger. Currencies has no other value than the one granted by whom old the guns to "defend the ledger". I love your speech Mr Sinek, but your talking about something that ceased to exist.

    What about this one : "there's two kind of people in the world : those who accept to exploit others, and those who don't". I hope to see those two groups fight (to death, I don't mind) for their respective "values", and see the later win.

    Well in capitalism, the purpose of a company is defined to make profits. Impact on society etc. is not important, as long as it generates profit. So from that point of view employees would be the fuel that brings the company to a place with more profit. 😡
