That was amazing! Something I need to remember to live by and remind my students to strive for. Thanks for sharing that!

Excellent summary of what life is really about and actions that will lead to personal satisfaction as well as success.

Follow up to Watson: What you stated is true. You clearly summed up "good" v. "common". I only meant it should be common, as in from my selfish perspective. Meaning it should not have to be a special process that determines laziness, failure to plan, doing what you hate, while being bad at it, will not breed wealth and success. In turn, it is GOOD sense to do the opposite of that and it SHOULD be COMMON sense.

This was terrific! A beautifully summed-up way to share the wisdom of well-known successful people.
So true that students (much of society?) have money as a goal; so smart to show that the money follows loving what you are doing... in most cases!

Response to Thomas Christian: "Common sense" is not so common, quite unfortunately. Perhaps this is one reason that the notion is called, literally, "good sense" in French. It is not considered to be common, but it is good.

This reminds me a little of Stephen R. Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. I think you will find commonalities like passion, persistence and risk(don't fear failure), in many motivational speakers speaches and books. Being organized, having a good idea, and working toward a goal should be common sense.
