I grew up in the Presbyterian church, in a family of engineers. Here’s what some of the prevailing assumptions were:
- There’s only one way to do things: the Right Way.
- The Right Way is hard work.
- You get what you earn.
- There’s no such thing as a free lunch.
- Money doesn’t grow on trees.
- Life is hard.
- Life is not fair.
* EEK! *
Here’s a little word equation that Presbyterians and engineers don’t tell you:
Having fun is easy & having money is fun = having money is easy
(See why I’m no longer Presbyterian or living with engineers? haha)
