Delivering Happiness: MUST READ

I spent a wonderful Sunday afternoon in the sunshine reading the book:
"Delivering Happiness" by Tony Hsieh - CEO, Inc
WOW! What a read!
Big lessons for me:
  • happiness is from the connections you have with others and the work you do
  • if you hit the alarm clock to snooze too many days in a row, you need to evaluate if you are still happy (and in love) with what you are doing
  • risk - take risks, be humble, look for opportunity
  • build a culture that suits your business - the fact that Zappos is so open and transparent gives me hope that the future for everyone is just a little brighter!
  • happiness comes from the ability to align yourself with a higher purpose - to truly be happy, finding purpose will exceed the strength of pleasure
Finally:  Envision, create, and believe in your own universe.
Thank you Tony!!!
