I just got back from a sales meeting where a new guy talked about a company he worked for once that was on the verge of getting a huge contract. The boss said, "If this goes through, we'll all be sitting on the beach in Hawaii throwing hundred dollar bills in the air."
Of course, this image, which is meant to be a powerful motivator simply puzzles me. Why would you throw the money in the air?
Why not go shopping with it? There must be some fabulous restaurants in Hawaii where you could enjoy lobster, and all the amenities for that hundred dollars. Or go buy some great shoes, purses, and make up. Get a spa treatment.
Or is the idea that you have so much money that you can do all these things and still have enough to throw away?
If that's the case, then how about giving it to homeless people? Or better yet, find a nice catholic nun (aka Whoopi Goldberg in Ghost) and give those hundred dollar bills to her instead of throwing them in the air.
Is it possible to have so much money that ever wasting it like that makes any sense whatsoever?
