What to do in life? Learn, earn and give away

Andrew Carnegie shared a very interesting philosophy of life, useful and enriching for all social entrepreneurs.

This is something I read a few days ago and I just can’t stop thinking about it. I beleive it is a nice way to see life. At least for now.

Andrew Carnegie (1835-119), an American businessmand and philantopist, shared this philosophy about life:

  • Learn all you can in the first third.
  • Earn all you can in the second third.
  • Give it all away in the final third.


Great, isn’t it?


By the way, I found this in this Robert Ashton‘s book about social entrepreneurship:

ASHTON, R. (2010). How To Be A Social Entrepreneur Make Money & Change The World. United Kingdom: Capstone Publishing. p. 19.
