The E-List
Kate Yandoh on Culture

Forget the 500 or even the 100, the Fortune list you really want to be on is The 25 People We Envy Most .

These folks have apparently been chosen for green-inducing reasons that aren't just about the greenbacks, athough there are enough of those for a big valley: being able to wear Chuck Taylors to work (Mario Batali,) 'having a stomach flatter than two-week-old Fresca' (Gwen Stefani,) being able to complete a project you've dreamed of doing since age 13 (Peter Jackson and his remake of 'King Kong') and Pastor/author Rick Warren: 'apart from the Rolling Stones, not many middle-aged white guys can fill a stadium with adoring fans, but Warren can, and his are actually sober... As if that weren't enough: Warren gives away 90% of his income. And he'll never wake up wondering if his job has meaning.'

Who do you envy most - and can that be good inspirational fuel for you?
(For snarky fun, don't miss the accompanying 'Lucky List' at the bottom.)

So here's a whole other perspective on the topic.
I don't envy anybody. There are people I admire, there are people that I believe are creating a life that is better for all people...and I model myself off the ideas they present. But, I don't envy them. Envy evokes thoughts and images of not having enough, or being good enough or the other side to that, if only I had that I would be good enough..etc. It's not about the bling but that can get lost in the process of envy if we let it...Living la vida fearless, Jan www.tobeyourbest.net

How interesting that only 3 of the people on the envy list of 25 are women. What does that tell us?
