"So then you decide, 'Well, I'm sick of myself. I'm going to think of how other people can be happy. I'm going to get up in the morning and think, What can I do for even one other person, even a dog...?' And the first person who gets happy when you do that ... you.”
Bob Thurman | 1941 - | American Buddhist scholar
He shared that during a TED talk many years ago (below). Thankfully, the thought still pops into my head at least a couple times a week.
Imagine the positive impact on your career and the people around you if you woke up tomorrow ... sick of yourself.
