This morning I called my home in Jerusalem and blurted out to my father all the difficulties I’m experiencing right now. I went on for a bit and my poor dad wasn’t sure what to say. So at the end of the conversation he said that he didn’t have any solutions for me but that I should remember that if a problem is solve-able with money, it isn’t a serious problem.
He said that this is usually how it works. If money is a solution, it means it’s not the most serious type of problem.
The point is not that you definitely have money to solve the problem but it just helps quantify the severity of the issue.
I thought that was just one of the wisest thing I’d heard in a long time! What do you think?
