Moribund companies value success. Great companies value happiness.

 

At four, it’s about happiness.

At fourteen, it’s all about responsibility.

At twenty-four, it’s all about ambition.

At thirty-four, it’s all about success.

At forty-four, it’s all about ambition.

At fifty-four, it’s all about responsibility.

At sixty-four, it’s all about happiness.

At seventy-four, it’s all about happiness.

At eighty-four, it’s all about happiness.

At ninety-four, it’s all about happiness.

Happiness trumps everything.  Leadership is all about recognizing that.  We have a better idea what it takes to be happy than what it takes to be successful.  Understandably, those who achieve their own personal happiness only in success do not recognize that perfect, long-lasting happiness is found only when providing happiness to others. Never underestimate happiness as a motivator.

When you value happiness, you will lead a great company. Until then, all you are doing is managing one.
