GTD and the Pursuit of Happiness

Pursuit of happiness 2

Today, I want to share with you a post that was published by a guy from Ottawa (Canada) on LinkedIn a few days ago. His name is Aatik Chopra and I loved the way in which, with a few simple words, he defined how should be the pursuit of happiness:

Today, I proudly quit my Management Consulting job so that I can pursue a career in Education, specifically to become a Teacher!
In other words, I’m leaving a career that left me consistently unhappy for one that truly aligns with my values in life.
Overall, I’d like to share two insights gained during this experience:
1. Don’t let others define success for you. Long-term happiness = success.
2. Creating long-term happiness is dependent on aligning your actions to your values. SELF REFLECTION is key to determining your values.
Kindly let me know if you know of any teaching-related opportunities – I am eager to begin making an impact in the field of Education!

Aatik's post

Aatik’s words, as well as inspiring, explain why GTD is much more than a personal organization system. It is a system that encourages you to reflect on your values and to align your daily actions and projects with your long-term goals.

Definitely, GTD is a life philosophy that helps you look for happiness in the long term.

This year, forget about New Year’s resolutions. Be brave and start pursuing your happiness, , whatever that means to you.

Happy New Year!
