Transcript: Think Seven Generations Ahead

For me, the issue is thinking far enough ahead to know that not only this generation is going to be able to sustain itself but the next one. Like the American Indians, at least they have been attributed to saying, they think seven generations down the road about how what they're doing now affects seven generations down the road. That makes sense to me, so I want to handle myself so that seven generations down the road what I do will allow my descendants to have an adequate life.
