Didn't Jimmy Buffet make a whole lot money by not following his own advice?

A flat out shitton. Now he's building entire communities where retiring boomers can go live the Margaritaville lifestyle, eat in Margaritaville restaurants, wear Margaritaville flip-flops, and go on vacation to Margaritaville resorts. Evidently doing that increases their self-respect and sense of community (look up Parrothead clubs, they do a lot of charity work). And I'm sure Jimmy's self-respect is just fine, too. Value and meaning have little to do with it, what with it being just opinions.

My philosophy can also be summed up as "Fuck it, Dude, let's go bowling". You pays your money and you takes your choice.
