The Key To Happiness at Work
I read this guy’s blog a while ago. He was a day-trader, and he writes about being happy. His insights are profound, and have shaped how I choose to live today. And he is not really writing about day-trading.
Here’s a snippet “Day trading is the dream. You can make enough money to not care. To do it from anywhere. To be happy.
It won’t work. But people don’t want to believe it. Most people think they have that one special something that will make it work for them.
And it’s true – they do have that one special something. But you can’t get there by day trading first. You can skip right to the being happy part. You can skip right to being free.
But we never learned that. We were taught we had to do something first to earn freedom. We were taught that suffering was the currency to buy happiness.
Okay, go do it. Then cry about it. Then get scared. Then curse the craziness. Then cry more. None of that will make you happy.”
