"Food for thought"

"Everyone has a Rolex. If you don't have a Rolex by the time you reach 50, then you have clearly failed in your life."
-- Jacques Séguéla

What is the point of this post? What does it have to do with marketing or creativity? You could own a Rolex and live in a cardboard box. And who is everyone? The top .1%? This is kind of thinking that has gotten us into the financial mess we're in, with everyone chasing the same illusions of wealth and happiness instead of doing the hard work to create lasting prosperity.

It has all to do with our (Western world) "culture of success". Seguela's statement is quite revealing of our modus vivendi, unfortunately.
