As each year passes, the more I appreciate this quote from Steve Jobs:
“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.”
So soon it will be time to put 2014 to rest.
This is a very important part to making 2015 happier and more productive. When you can look back with an honest eye about what went well and what didn’t go so well in your career in 2014 then you can more easily make 2015 better.
It’s the “measure and refine” system that I emphasize that you should incorporate into your life. It’s a more conscious way of living and working. You feel more and accept more and enjoy more of your work.
As more of you have purchased my Unlock Your Career Happiness guide, the more I see that it’s helping a lot of you work happier and get better results from your career and life.
