So it my poor wording of this goal that is at fault here. But as it stands, this is done.

I ask myself,” would I want to continue to be ‘poor but honest’ or ‘rich and questionable?’”
I have to say I would rather be ‘wealthy and honest.’ When presented with only two choices it can be worthwhile to check out the third option.
...is not just incomplete – it is plain wrong. Because an important phrase is being missed out – it should be of course that ’ the love of money is the root of all evil ’.
There is even a book called ‘How the rich are destroying the planet’ – perhaps that is so but I am not convinced. Yet. I need evidence that what Gordon Gecko says in ‘Wall Street’ is right. “Greed is good – greed works.” Well perhaps one also needs a philanthropic tertiary objective so that one does not sabotage oneself subconsciously.
So increased charitable giving seems the way to go. e.g. I will triple my net income in twelve months and will then give away X to worthy causes.
