Can “Happy and Successful” go together?
Always on the lookout for interesting information, my father sent me this article, the closest to a “to-do” list to find success and feel joy at the end of the day (or journey). A very successful entrepreneur, my father is a testimony that if you follow this recipe, it works!
Here is the To-Do list (excerpts from Paul Johnson´s Forbes article):
- Combine the pursuit of wealth with creativity. Go into business making something real, tangible; creating something where there was nothing.
- Produce something useful, delightful, beautiful.
- Generate satisfaction in others by creating jobs that justify themselves. Give others the chance to support themselves with honor and usefulness.
- Seek a moral basis, not just the pursuit of a financial goal that satisfies material needs, but also nurture emotional and spiritual needs with your occupation.
