One of Seth’s latest books is the Icarus Deception which delves deeper into the Go Do Art theme from Linchpin. At the end of the day, Art is what will make you Happy. When you ship your art, your genius flows and you feel alive.
“People spend more time planning a vacation than they do their lives.” – Jim Rohn. You have to plan for Happiness too.
“The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything.”
Happiness is on purpose. It requires a plan. Peace has a cost – sometimes it is real dollars, sometimes an opportunity cost, sometimes what you’re going to give up. But sometimes you have to give something up in order to get something better.
Change is not pain free either.
“Smile every chance you get. Not because life has been easy, perfect, or exactly as you had anticipated, but because you choose to be happy and grateful for all the good things you do have and all the problems you know you don’t have.
Abe Lincoln said that you are as happy as you decide to be.
Never let a bad day make you feel like you have a bad life. [source]

What are YOU Passionate about that you want to share with Tampa in 5 minutes?
That’s right, IGNITE is like TED Lite. Just 5 minutes for your 20 slides to auto-advance every 15 seconds.
We have 20 speaker slots. Submissions through the website will start soon.
The key to being picked? A Good Bio that doesn’t take longer than 20 seconds to read; and a Good Headline. The summary of the topic should not be longer than the actual talk.

What do I need to do?
What do I want to do?
[hardly ever the same thing]
How many should’s do you have?
What are my priorities?
How do I focus on what is important, not just urgent?
What prompts me to do what I need to do?
How do I get more of the right things done in even less time?
How do I measure success?
Am I being effective? Or just efficient?
How could I do less and consequently achieve more?
What is obvious if I looked at it differently?
What Counts? Everything Counts.
What to be Unstoppable? Keeping working on yourself and the rest will take care of itself.
