- “Happiness isn’t doing what you like, it’s liking what you do.” -Quote on my dad's desk
- Vance Caesar was one of my professors in graduate school.
- He wrote The High Achiever’s Guide To Happiness*
- Vance said, “Create more ‘gets to's' than ‘got to's”
- Do you have more “get to’s” than “got to's?”
- Do you have to give someone feedback today, or do you get to?
- Do you have to give a presentation today, or do you get to?
- Do you have to resolve a conflict today, or do you get to?
- Do you have to go to work today, or do you get to?
- The secret to happiness is having more “gets to's” than “got to's”
What will you do this week to turn a “got to” into a “get to?”
