Transcript of "11 Lessons For Living A Good Life"

  1. 1. Every problem is an opportunity for a creative solution. Listen to Tina Seelig’s talk, “What I wish I knew when I was 20” on the Stanford Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders Series (iTiunes) for a really interesting challenge involving a 5 dollar bill (and for the inspiration for all the remaining slides).
  2. 2. ...research shows that people can increase their luck by consciously practicing being lucky. Lucky people are magnetic socially—they draw people in around them. Other people find them attractive and inviting largely because of their body language and facial expressions.Lucky people smile twice as much as unlucky people, and they engage in a lot more eye contact. Their body language is warm and open: They keep their arms uncrossed, and they often display open palms. Lucky people talk to strangers. Lucky people greet strangers in coffee shops, talk to people in lines, chat with fellow airline passengers. Being relaxed helps us be attuned to opportunities around us. On the other hand, stress makes us inattentive and unobservant. People who are made anxious in experiments become less able to spot details, even those that are right in front of their noses. When we are relaxed, we are more likely to notice when a lucky opportunity comes our way. (From Christine Carter, PhD) The harder I work, the luckier I get.
  3. 3. Find the sweet spot. (Note: Passions are necessary, but are not suf cient.)
  4. 4. Try lots of things and keep what works.
  5. 5. You don’t have to wait to be anointed!
  6. 6. It’s a small world. Actually there are only 50 people in the world. The rest is wallpaper. So don’t burn bridges.
  7. 7. You can do it all, just not at the same time.
  8. 8. There is no such thing as short term balance. (so just catch it before it hits the floor.)
  9. 9. (It is the little things that matter most.)
  10. 10. Make others on your team successful. It might feel like you are giving away power, but you’re not. The more you make others successful, the more it comes back to you many many fold.
  11. 11. Never miss an opportunity to be fabulous.
