Even the man who has everything can’t always get a good 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep.
Bezos awoke around 2:17am in a frantic sweat, muttering, “It was a dream…just a dream…”
He went to sleep in a world in which he was the richest man on earth and dreamed he had to pay all his taxes and give his employees basic healthcare benefits, “I was still the richest person in the world, but I almost had to cancel the Expanse. I mean, if I start treating my employees with basic human dignity, where would it end?”
Bezos encourages people to remember that everyone is fighting a hard battle – even if they are successful.
“Don’t ever let people tell you being a trillionaire is easy – at any moment we can experience the emotional fallout that come from a lifetime of exploiting the poor for our own greed and it takes a fair amount of illegal sleeping pills to push that feeling back down.”
