Awesome castles in the air, or humble huts on the ground?

Not all those who aspire for Olympic gold medala manage to get the medal. But all those who bagged the gold medal had had the burning desire or aspiration to begin with. Rewards accrue to those who dream big. So we are told by motivational speakers.

Calvin and Hobbes offer a different perspective:

Calvin: If you could have anything in this world right now, what would it be?

Hobbes: Hmmm

Calvin: Anything at all! Whatever you want!

Hobbes: A sandwich.

Calvin: A sandwich??? What kind of stupid wish is that? Talk about a failure of imagination! I’d ask for a trillion billion dollars! My own space shuttle and a private continent.

Hobbes: (later, holding a sandwich in his hands): I got MY wish!

You can decide whose advice you want to follow. Those motivational speakers or Hobbes.

Trillion billion dollars - well I can't count reliably beyond 100,000. So I wouldn't trust myself with anything more than that. A space shuttle - where would I take it for service if it broke down - NASA?
Ni sir, I am happy with a nice cucumber sandwich and some good tea to go with it.
