Happiness at work and Goal-Free Living

Me on stage at last Friday’s excellent event

Do you feel you have the right goals in life and at work? What do your goals do to you? Are you always chasing goals other people set for you? Are you one of the people who never seem to reach their goals? Or do you reach them – but forget to enjoy it?

Last Friday (Oct. 5) Christian Ørsted and I arranged an event here in Copenhagen which was all about goals:

  • Nicolai Moltke-Leth (one of Denmark’s most famous business speakers) spoke about finding your mission in life
  • I spoke about goals at work and how your main goal should always be to be happy at work (duh!)
  • Christian spoke about finding the energy you need for reaching your goals
  • Stephen Shapiro spoke about Goal-Free Living – how to have goals but not be a slave to them

Raise your hand if…

The event was a smash hit and fully sold out – no mean feat considering that we planned, promoted and executed the whole thing in less than 2 weeks. We rock :o)

Gareth Garvey took some amazing pictures of the event. Below are some of my favorites – click here to see Gareth’s entire photo set.

    Looks like you guys had a GREAT time! I’m impressed with how you managed to pull together 200 people in only 2 weeks! How the heck did you do that? And how were you able to attract sponsors so quickly?

    I’m amazed! I’d love to pull together a Personal Development kind of event where top PD bloggers get together and headline the event to inspire people.
