“Most people are so busy knocking themselves out trying to do everything they think they should do, they never get around to do what they want to do.”
~ Kathleen Winsor

“Luck is the by-product of busting your fanny.”
~ Don Sutton

What if we combine the above two thoughts?
The good life is about…busting your fanny at the thing you most want to do.

This sounds pretty similar to doing first things first, and the rest taking care of itself. Somewhat like walnuts and rice.

    That pretty much sums up the (excellent) book ‘Success Built to Last’ too. After interviewing the most successful people in the world, the most common advice they have for success is to do what you love and do it damn well.

    In Cannes on materinity leave with the baby. Doing nothing but playing with the baby, shopping at fruit market, taking long walks on the beach and sipping coffee (decaf, for the moment) in seaside cafes. Have never been happier; not sure I would want to work my fanny off at being happier.
