Asking the wrong questions

I’ve recently pondered the potential of being a philosopher

But my economic and business brain nevertheless reared its head and started questioning this decision: how can I make a living (particularly a wealthy living) while calling myself a philosopher?

I was pleasantly slapped with the realization that a true philosopher is not so much worried about creating a living, as he is worried about learning how to live.

Oftentimes we ask the wrong questions and we get results we don’t like.

I’ll continue looking to build bridges between economics and humanities.

But at the same stretch, I need to understand that if I want to be an economist as well as a philosopher, I need to ask the right questions if I want to truly solve anything.
