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?
