Worthwhile Thought: Monday
Anita Sharpe on Passionate Work

'The key to a happy life is to accomplish things that you really feel like are good for somebody beyond just you. Nothing else will do it. A lot of people think happiness is about lots of time to play. I was a manic kayaker for a long time. And there were some people who just managed to arrange their whole life around kayaking and of course, we were all insanely jealous. But then, with the benefit of hindsight, that choice doesn't work out so great and I think it is because it's all about you. OK, maybe you like kayaking, but what are you going to be proud of at the end of the day? You may pass the time more or less pleasantly, but you're not going to feel too good about it. The same thing is true with getting rich.' -- Green developer and Mindspring Founder Charles Brewer, interviewed in the Premiere issue of Worthwhile magazine

I wonder if you can achieve success by trying to do things that will make other people happy. I think true happiness comes from doing all you can to ensure that you are happy. Curt Rosengren had written about what Gandhi had said, 'be the change you want to see in the world'. It starts with you and ultimately the world, and I am pretty sure about that:)
