Agree or Disagree?
Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.
--Henry David Thoreau
I'm not sure if I agree with this statement. I mean, I know that success is usually tied to intense hard work, but I tend to think that most successful people are looking ahead at the big picture while they're working. That their focus on success is what is driving them to work so hard.
As for happiness, which I kind of use as my yard-stick for measuring my success, I really think that since I've started to "look for" happiness, it's come to me more easily. Maybe it was there all along, and I just didn't recognize or appreciate it.
Or maybe now I'm "busying" myself with working towards happiness. Hmm. I'll have to think about this one.
What do you think?
