Andrew Carnegie had an interesting take on a person's life. This life view is called the Andrew Carnegie Dictum.
- Spend the first third of one's life getting all the educaiton one can.
- Spend the next third making all the money one can.
- Spend the last third giving it all away for worthwhile causes.
Andrew Carnegie wanted to be identified by the world as a "positivist."
