American Inventor – How To Lose in Life

Written by George Manty  · April 14, 2006

I have been watching the tv show American Inventor on ABC since it started. There is one thing that has really bothered me about some of the contestants and I decided this would be a great place to post my concern.

Many of the people auditioning for the show have given up a lot for their invention. They have spent tons of money, sold their house, etc. Which is ok up to a point. Certainly persistence is extremely important in achieving success. But…

Quite a few of them have mentioned giving up their family, getting a divorce, losing their spouses, children, friends, etc. for their “dream”. Quite frankly that is going too far. When you give up your marriage, your children, your relationships, you are making a HUGE mistake. You might make a great invention that way. And maybe you will make millions. But then who will you have to share the joy with?

It’s the easiest way to lose in life. It really saddened me to see people had gone that far, sometimes for things that were really quite frankly bad ideas.

Even when you aren’t going this far, I believe it is very important to not let your ambitions ruin your relationships with your wife, kids, family, and friends. It’s just not worth it.

Now sure, when you start up you may need to spend extra time to get things going, but eventually you have to work out a plan to use your time wisely, so that you have MORE time to spend with your family and friends. I think it is SOOOOO important to keep your business in perspective.

Lastly, take a break to smell the roses. The Earth will continue spinning even when your not busy trying to make big money online…

    I agree totally with what you are saying. The thing that upset me most about the show is that its supposed to feature the best inventor. Well, inventors are creative and smart and think outside the circle. To show and applaud people who are in foreclosure and jobless as the important to becoming the 12 finalisits upset me.

    Why wasn’t the one able to do it for almost no money and really creatively not in the running?
