Outrun Change

We need to learn quickly to keep up with the massive change around us so we don't get run over. We need to outrun change.

Great ways to make sure you are always unhappy

Jeff Haden surveys 7 Poisonous Beliefs That Make You Desperately Unhappy.

He suggests that if you are routinely unhappy, there might be some things inside you that are the cause. The good news is that you can change those drivers. If you recognize them and if you want to.

Here’s a few of his points I particularly enjoyed.

You believe professional success will bring lasting fulfillment. 

You believe you can do everything. 

Contrary to the message of our society, you can’t every specific thing you put your mind to.

As an illustration, he says a muscular guy who weighs 250 will never finish a marathon in under 2 hours 30 minutes. The flip side is a marathon high achiever will never bench press 350.

I will never be a professional musician or Fortune 500 CFO or Big 4 partner. But I do run my own CPA firm and am a published author. I have no interest in the former, and have a blast doing the later.

You’re afraid of who you really are. 

You have no one to call at 3 a.m. 

Check out the full article. It will be worth a few minutes. Check out his book too.
