One Leader’s Top 10 List for Executive Happiness

I recently read an article about a successful and happy business leader and he shared his thoughts on ten key things that help an executive be happy.  His thoughts resonated with me and made me think about happiness, particularly at work.  I think you will find this very interesting and thought provoking.

Top 10 List for Executive Happiness

  1. What other people think of you is none of your business – live your life
  2. Moderation in all things…even good things
  3. Hard work and grit beats intelligence every time
  4. Workout 5 or 6 times a week, it helps manage stress and keeps you healthy
  5. Caring about others more than yourself makes you a much better person
  6. Stuff will not make you happy, only good relationships and being productive will
  7. There is a higher power, when you listen to it, life is good
  8. The only people that lose are people that give up, never give up on yourself or your family
  9. Life is not as serious as you think, make time for being silly
  10. Treat success and failure, those two impostors, just the same…you are never as good as your highest high or as bad as your lowest low
