Riddle me this, bankman

People sometimes tell me I am wasting my "talents" by not pursuing some obvious route to greater influence, or monetary reward -- as though the world needs more people motivated by these concerns, from which the rest of us can take our cue.

But what is so wrong about doing something worthwhile for its own sake? Isn't that the point of living?

I submit the best route to influence is not always obvious.
