SE05 happy#224 – because you can

simplicity of happiness · SE05 happy#224 – because you can

So often, people need to have a reason to take action. It can become difficult to chose between investment and return, especially when helping others? 

Does there really need to be a return or is it about how we feel ourself doing it in the first place?

A while ago, I had the chance to help a friend who found himself in a difficult situation. All I did was asking others, including my newsletter subscribers to help me and him out.

I was blown away by the help we received for my friend and it made me proud that I did it. Although… looking closely I did not do much. I just asked others for help, simply because I could.

That kept me thinking. Aren‘t these always the most amazing things? Those we do, just because we can but don‘t have to?

What is it that you do, just because you can?

What is it that you would like to do just because you can?

Maybe we should aim for that more often.

Until then, take care my friend.

Best, Floh

happy#223 – introvert

simplicity of happiness · happy#223 – introvert

Introvert or Extrovert. Most of us heart these terms before, but who can recall any business training, strategy or job motivation that did not seem to be for the extroverts.

I belief that this is more on the behavioral site than a real character trade and this behavior being caused by different intrinsic motivations. Nevertheless it occurs in each one of us.

Jon Bakers, todays guest specializes in training and coaching for introverts and people leading introverts in their team.

Being an introvert himself it is a wonderful insightful conversation with him. He gives a lot of tips about living and introvert life or dealing with one.

You can find out more about him at: https://introvertinbusiness.co.uk/

Until then, take care my friend.

happy#222 – retire early

simplicity of happiness · happy#222 – retire early

While working on this podcast episode, I stumbled upon this text:

F–– You Money

Back in the 1920s, the actor Humphrey Bogart used to keep a $100 bill in his nightstand at all times. That’s the equivalent of over $1,200 today. He referred to it as his ‘f–– you money’, because it meant he’d never be forced to take a part he didn’t want. He once said that the only good reason for making money was so you can tell anyone in the world to go to hell.

What’s your number? How much money would you need to happily turn down opportunities that you don’t want? And what if you could turn them down before you hit that number…?

Then it hit me, because what Chris Mamula, todays guest did was not to retire, he just saved enough f—- you money, to become free enough to only choose what he is doing.

If you want to know what that means to him and how he actually managed to have that amount of money by 41 listen to the episode or find out more about him directly at:

Until then, take care my friend.
