More Wisdom Than Meets The Ear

August 24, 2009

When I first read the following words in the June 2009 issue of The Mensa Bulletin, I almost dismissed them as pop psychology, self-help BS. However, reading the therapist’s thoughts about the ranking of the three items helped me to understand that  the real value is the prioritization. Here they are: 

      There are only three things to remember:

      1. I will be happy

      2. I will make some money

      3. I will make other people happy

One hundred percent of the people I saw agreed with the three, but not one of them had the order right! Get them out of order an it will fail, ultimately.
