Hi friends I have a confusion that either should i work to get intelligence or try to just earn money.I always work for getting perfection in every way but I don't earn well money.Then should I try to work for earning money. It always feels good to me that I have some intelligence.But I think it doesn't come easily and while I am working for perfection,maybe I have to come on reality and try for money

What you are trying to say is that you seek job satisfaction. But for one's survival one needs to earn. Till such time that you can say that you have enough for your survival you need to make some compromises and take up jobs that can help you earn.

Hi allknowing, I am just trying to say that is it good that I have the perfection in what the job I am doing or I just make the ways to earn money in that field.Although it seems same that perfection brings money but sometimes it is different as for gaining intelligence,I miss my work or late in doing job.

When I said compromise I did not mean that you should compromise on quality but doing a job that may not give you job satisfaction and yet you require to do it for your survival until such time when you feel you can take the risk and pick and choose those jobs that you enjoy doing.

I see you have already chosen the Best Response. One is expected to wait atleast a week before doing this. Yours is a very interesting topic and I am sure many would have responded. They can still do it but once a BR tag is given normally users do not attempt to respond. This is just for your future reference.

Don't ever compromise on your goal for perfection. Ultimately, quality would always win. However, there is also a need for efficient work.Your goal for perfection ought not to make you compromise on your time because there would always be limitations for everybody.In this world you need money too and your intelligence must be put to competitive and productive use. But set your targets, learn to live frugally if you want to have money and achieve perfection too.If you are in a job, then you would have to give 100 percent of your efforts in some ares where it really counts and less on other areas where it really does not count.Channelising your intelligence is a smart way of working. YOu will get money but 'knowledge is power'and striving for perfection and working to your own satisfaction would fetch you results tomorrow if not today. But keep checking whether you re doing it properly in the right direction. All the best!

Hi kalav Your words are very inspiring.But it comes very difficult to me.What you said,I already know and try to follow also but I am slightly slow at work so I think I might need some experience that make my job worst.

What you say is true. We know where we are making mistakes and also know what is to be done.Hoeevr, when it becomes a matter of implementation there creeps in other problems. Do not worry. Never lose faith in your own ability and the Almighty GOd who has given you that ability. He will take care ; you may be slow but it is a matter of time.With diligent practice you will achieve what you want. Maintain your peace of mind and this is most important. Thanks alot for the BR. See ! Even in a response, I did not expect to get a BR but wrote my heartfelt response. You will definitely achieve your goal and this would be something GOd has ordained. Sincere hard and smart work will yield results somewhere.All the best!

I think that really intelligence is the way to go. You can make all of the money in the world but if you don't have the smarts, then you might do something stupid with said money. There are many people out there who have stumbled into huge fortunes, where they are really going to earn a lot of money. However, they tend to blow it all away to say the very least. I find that in the end, its intelligence that makes the world go around, not how much money we have. Of course, when you really think about it, you do need to have both in many ways and there is no reason why you cannot really have both. I try and apply my intelligence to earn as much money as I can. That is just the way things tend to work in the world.

Hello megamatt Yes it is the intelligence that can give us money but money can't give is intelligence.World always respect intelligent persons truly but money can't get true respect from others.

Always go for intelligence first. Using your intelligence can lead you to making money. Do not nit pick so much on perfection that you ignore the core knowledge and reasons for things. Concentrating too much on perfection can freeze one from walking forward. Never allow that.

Yes bird, I am in same way like you.I also think that intelligence gives us money at last but money can't give us intelligence.So rather run behind money go to intelligence.

This is only my opinion but I think it is like education or work. Both are separate things making money or working for a purpose (perfection, intelligence). As in the case for companies that do research, they invest time and money but they get little return for the actually effort. However, this investment does not mean that later in another activity, that is the application that comes from the research that money will not be made but it is at another time or location. Does this help with the question or is it just confusing? Thanks for posting this question.
