Thursday Thought: Success vs Happiness

“Success is getting what you want; happiness is wanting what you get.”

It’s good to strive for new things, but you have to be happy with what you currently have, otherwise you’ll never be satisfied. Pretty profound thought coming out of an email thread between one of my buddies, foolishly talking owning a third car.

On a side note, I created the illustration above based on Simon Oxley’s style. He’s followed me recently, and I figured I’d give him a shout out. He’s the designer of the original Twitter logo, Bitly logo, and GitHub logo. Pretty impressive resume, if you ask me. Everything he touches turns to gold.
