Food for Thought Friday: Learning about Life from 80 Successful People

by Kristie Burk

On this Food for Thought Friday, I wanted to share an article that I found on LinkedIn.  If you’re not on LinkedIn, by the way, you should consider it.  LinkedIn is a social network for your professional contacts.  (I actually found this Cyber Coordinator job when LinkedIn suggested it to me – how cool is that?)

Today’s article is called “What I Learned About Life After Interviewing 80 Highly Successful People” by James Altucher, co-founder of 20 companies and author of many best selling books, including Choose Yourself.

In the article, he explains that he learned about the importance of laughter and play, for example, from a 28-year old man who has built himself an empire helping others become entrepreneurs.

“I’ve written before: The average kid laughs 300 times a day. The average adult…5.

Something knifed our ability to smile. Do everything you can to laugh, to create laughter for others, and then what can possibly be bad about today?” – James Altucher

Take a few minutes to read the article and let us know what you think at!
