But is making happiness our top priority right for everyone?
Should we all put happiness first in our personal, family and business lives or do other priorities weigh in as more important? That’s for each of us to decide.
For some of us other things are more important than happiness… security, social significance, power, prominence, or perhaps creativity or making a lasting, important, indelible impact or contribution.
The world is a far richer, more delightful place because of Steve Jobs. His vision and determined dedicated leadership have changed the world. One would not say he has taken the traditional route to happiness.
No doubt he has achieved great happiness but in different, unusual ways.
We all can’t be Steve Jobs and Steve Jobs needs the rest of us doing what we are doing for his business model to succeed.
There are many different paths to happiness, but the qualities and characteristics of a happy life remain constant.
Money, success and power take precedence over happiness for many people. Many people could easily have both if the knew how to balance the two.
Greatness in any field requires sacrifices, but it also definitely has its rewards.
