Giving Thanks for the Biz of You

Some thoughts for Thanksgiving that relate to the biz of you:

Have no mean hours, but be grateful for every hour, and accept what it brings. 
Henry David Thoreau, Journals

The chief requirement of the good life . . . is to live without any image of yourself.
Iris Murdoch, The Bell

Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations Book VII

Self-knowledge is no guarantee of happiness, but it is on the side of happiness and can supply the courage to fight for it. 
Simone de Beauvoir, Force of Circumstance Vol. III

We love what we love.  Reason does not enter into it.  In many ways, unwise is the truest love.  Anyone can love a thing because.  That’s as easy as putting a penny in your pocket.  But to love something despite.  To know the flaws and love them too. That is rare and pure and perfect.
Patrick Rothfuss in The Wise Man’s Fear

Our business is inextricably bound the the business of others, the business of companies and our nations.  Focusing on the biz of you and being clear about it with the businesses we interact with will in the long run make things better for us all.   It’s all about know what we want, planning to get there, utilizing our resources within our present constrains and adapting to the ever folding interactions we encounter.  Thus it’s important to love what we love, understanding ourselves, knowing how we think, not holding to one image of ourselves and accepting what each hour brings.

Happy Thanksgiving.
