The only way to be truly satisfied......

Posted on 3rd September, 2009

Sitting here in my office, realising I have never shared this before.

 

It sits, framed, on my desk and is a guiding force in my life. I think it is relevant to me, of course, but also many - if not most - of my clients:

 

"The only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.

 

Your time is limited, so waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And, most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

 

Stay hungry. Stay foolish"

I'm just glad the guy who fixed my dishwasher, last week, believes in great work and loves what he does for a living...
