I’m going to interrupt my nascent series on “Developing Emotional Intelligence” to let you know that tomorrow at noon, EST, Michelle Singletary — personal finance columnist for The Washington Post — will be interviewing John Bogle, founder of Vanguard and, most recently, Enough: True Measures of Money, Business and Life. Click here if you want to tune in tomorrow and here to read more about the book.
In praise of the book, Time Magazine writes, “It’s hard to imagine a better time to publish a book that advocates moderation, balance and integrity in the business world. In this wise meditation, Bogle…deplores ‘our worship of wealth and the growing corruption of our professional ethics but ultimately the subversion of our character and values.”

Contentment isn’t the fulfilment of what you want but the realization of how much you already have.
