Happiness = Reality – Expectations

Think about that…

I’ve watched this Casey Neistat vlog a couple times…it’s short. And no matter how many times I watch it, I appreciate the lesson he is gleaning from this Elon Musk interview.

Happiness = Reality – Expectations

Let that settle in a bit.

Quote to Live By (Beastie Boys)

I’d rather be a hypocrite than the same person forever.

Ad-Rock (Beastie Boys)

This was Ad-Rock’s response to a critic calling him a hypocrite regarding some of their early un-pc songs (like ‘Girls’), because Ad-Rock and the others have since said they see how childish their songs were and no longer agree with some of their lyrics.

Very good movie/documentary of this influential band.

Quote to Live By (Maimonides)

Anyone in leadership should embody this…

Teach thy tongue to say, ‘I do not know’, and thou shalt progress.

Maimonides

If there was one thing I would say I’m proud of that I learned very early on as a leader, it is that I have never been afraid to tell someone I do not know something. If you pretend otherwise, then you’re going to hit a wall as a manager and leader…quickly.
