“ The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering.”

— Bruce Lee

If you said the 3M: Money, Mansion, and Monaco, well, I am happy for you.

Indeed, most of us seek money because it will make us happy to be rich. What we are really seeking behind is financial freedom because nobody is buried in their bank account when they die.

A mansion represents all the material things that we spend our time looking for. That begs once again the question: will you take it to your grave?

You have a mansion of 200 rooms with 30 bathrooms, 10 garages, 5 cards, 3 swimming pools, and 2 helicopters. Cool!

Yet you are one, you can only be in one room, drive one car at a time! And for sure, you will have only one coffin.

Monaco? Yes, that one. The small “Rocher,” the Rock, shines like a diamond. Yet it is in the name: a rock. We all seek fame, to be a celebrity in these times on InstaFame and InstaDisapaearence, Snapchat and SnapLife, TweetNoise and TweetNone, FaceBook, and FaceDoubt, in other words, the mirage of “fame” in the reality of shame.

What characterizes the 3M is that they are Momentary.

Yes, as life, as you and me, you would say.

Let me clarify: they are not only momentary. They are also not legendary!

For me, being legendary means building things that will outlast my life on this planet. Basically, as a mortal, how can I be immortal?

As said by one of my mentors said:

“ The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering.”

— Bruce Lee

To build such a strong life, one needs a strong toolset.

One of the tools that works for me is the 3H axe. I use it to slice through life.

These are the 3H below:

  • H as Head
  • H as Heart
  • H as Hand
