    What do You, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, and Bono have in common?
    What do You, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, and Bono have in common?It's easy to tell you what you likely DON'T have in common with them - fame, fortune, and good looks...Okay, Fame and fortune... ... but here's what you DO have in common with Bill, Warren, and Bono. 24 hours in a day, and a sphere of influence....

    Undoubtedly, Kev, as mature leaders in our chosen career path or discipline, we have a duty to ensure that "passion will drive us towards doing something in the service of something larger than ourselves". But let's spare a thought for the many less fortunate out there who, for various reasons, are trapped in survival mode from day to day, and are slowly being robbed of their passion. How can we recognise them and include them in our "service of something larger"?

    #15 I tried the best out of a bad job but I ended up in the Hospital. But yes we try our best when our health isn't jeopardised. Thank-you for this list :)

    More to think about from the author:
    http://www.danpink.com/2012/04/50-centuries-of-work-5-important-lessons/

    "Here’s what Pillemer calls the “refrigerator list” of the five lessons gleaned from all that experience:

    1. Choose a career for the intrinsic rewards, not the financial ones.
    2. Don’t give up on looking for a job that makes you happy.
    3. Make the most of a bad job.
    4. Emotional intelligence trumps every other kind.
    5. Everyone needs autonomy." Close

    I had heard or read the amount of money most people need to feel happy at work caps out at $70-80,000. Then I saw this video and learned more about the research that makes so much sense.
    I've also heard of studies that show more than 75% of people are unhappy at work. Why?

    Dan Pink "demonstrates that while the old-fashioned carrot-and-stick approach worked successfully in the 20th century, it's precisely the wrong way to motivate people for today's challenges."

    You asked after working hard to be successful, "How will you know you've arrived?"
    Today, people need to use their passions and be fullfilled. Otherwise, they are "unhappy" - without really explaining why - but consider themselves part of the 75%. Close

    Kevin Pashuk.I always like such light posts which feature the real meaning of success.Although each one of those titans was driven by different motives,all were able to go against the logic of many others and their unprecedented success took place in the framework of their high expectations about their business.
    They have achieved spectacular success not because of their core skills or experience or qualification ,but because they have the passion ,the will and the motivation to keep going and not to regress to mediocrity or spectacular failure.I wonder whether those people have applied their own creativity or have been inspired by Aristotle when he quoted-success is a state concerned with choice,laying in a mean and being determined by reason and practical wisdom.

    Thanks for the kind words April. Conversations over coffee (or other beverages) tend to work for me. Taking on serious issues without getting too serious is my intent. There's enough esoteric things out there that will give you brain blisters. My writing won't be part of that.

    Thanks for reading this @Lyon Brave, this buzz has a special place in my heart. Since I wrote this my daughter had a baby girl and she's now 6 months old! She's a blessing and I believe the circle of life was completed once again. I was talking to my sister today, and I used to sign every card or letter I wrote my mom with, "Love you to the moon and back." My kids knew this and my son & his wife bought me a box with those words on it and it lights up like stars shining but you have to turn it on. While we were chatting (for almost a half hour) suddenly the lights came on. There is a switch and no one turned it on. Hello mom??? ;-)

    #39 oops pushed enter before I was done @Qamar Ali Khan, she was my best friend. She was an awesome mom to all of us as many mothers are! Thank you so much for your kind words and words of wisdom. We are very excited about the upcoming birth, I probably wont be able to resist posting a photo or two after he or she is born!!

    #39 HI @Qamar Ali Khan, I had no idea that mother is the most precious and priceless gift in your faith, that's so enduring to know!!! I will have to remember what you said, "If someone asks you to define love, just say mother." I can say that with sincere truth in my heart!

    Very emotional, heart-touching, and so real story @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher!. I'm just speechless. Mother is the most precious and priceless divine gift. In my faith, we believe that the heaven is under the mother's feet, and the father is the key to the heaven's gate. These two relations are the most important. The love of mother is the best representation of sincere love. If someone asks you to define love, just say "mother". I understand what you have lost and how you feel.

    As far as her own personal activities are concerned, she looked a marvelous human being, cheering, cherishing, happy, enjoying the life despite of the pains of life, loving wife, caring friend, and, especially, a thankful person. Being thankful to God and gratitude are the core qualities of a great and down to earth human being. I'm sure you and your siblings have inherited all the good from your mother and they are transferred to your kids as well. I know you Lisa and I'm sure you're a big taker of your mother's good nature. My all the best wishes to all of you and I pray your awaited little guest may become the reason to raise the happiness level for all of you.

    And you moved me @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher with your mother's simple rules of life and her wisdom. Memories don't die and your mother is remembered by you, grand children and the video. Life goes in circles and what sticks is the memory of people like your mother who taught you wealth of wisdom.
