Thoughts For The Weekend – Success vs. Happiness

When you’re running your own business, or just enjoying your day-to-day work it’s really easy to get carried away in a single project, a new deal or your next invention. But now and then I think that it’s important to take a few steps back, and either enjoy what you’re achieving or change the situation.

Anyhow earlier today I stepped over this list of one-liners around the subject Success vs. Happiness, and even though I find some of them a little bit strange, the most of them are worth thinking about in our everyday struggle towards happiness… or is it success?

Happy Weekend!

Quote For 2014

I’ve never been a hardcore fan of Lord of The Rings or The Hobbit, entertainment wise. But, as many others I think they are stunning to watch and it’s amazing how much work it must be to put it together. The scenery alone makes it worth watching.

During this Christmas Holiday I watched “The Hobbit – An Unexpected Journey” from last year, and in that movie Gandalf sums up what I try to have as my guide line in 2014 (and onward off course)

“Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love.”

A great and simple quote!

Best Wishes for 2014!
