This week on Facebook.com/SuccessFreaks, Charles asked the question Would you Rather be Brilliant or Inspired? First off, what’s the difference if any between the two? Are we just arguing semantics here or is it anything like Would you Rather be Lucky or Good? While one aspect taps into personal abilities and the other divine gifts, […]
The post SF #180 – Would you Rather be Brilliant or Inspired? appeared first on Success Freaks.
Tonight I'm talking about the Chicago Blackhawks continuing their struggles, dropping two more home games over the weekend in ugly fashion. With the NHL trade deadline approaching, would you rather see the Hawks make a move to shore up their defense or help their recently anemic offense? The Chicago Bulls have won 6 of their last 7, but Derrick Rose remains consistently inconsistent while Joakim Noah and some role players have stepped up their game. If you could have the MVP Derrick of old OR the Defensive Player of the Year Noah of last season, which would you rather have? I've got open phone lines for you! (347) 327-9183. BECAUSE CHICAGO LOVES SPORTS.

How many times have we found ourselves in a situation with someone where he or she will not back down from an argument? No matter what, that person insists he or she is correct. Situations like this are often unpleasant and frustrating and we often don’t think very highly of people who must be right at all costs.
We have to ask ourselves, though, how often do we do the very same thing? Our first reaction is likely that we’re not like that at all. But is that really the case? Are we more like the person who has to be right; only to lesser degrees?
How many disagreements could possibly be solved by simply harmoniously agreeing to disagree? It is possible. It merely requires us to change our perspective. It demands that we stop seeing the world from a self righteous viewpoint.
In this podcast we learn that when we find ourselves in one of those tense situations where we just have to prove our point, we can defuse the situation by asking ourselves, “Would I rather be right, or would I rather happy?”
We will find that momentary feeling of victory, of winning the point, or the whole match, is fleeting, because friction and strife is not likely getting you where you want to go. It is not creating stronger bonds. It is not moving you in the direction of personal growth. It’s really keeping you stuck.
We’ll discover that sometimes we simply have to decide between being right, or being happy. Because the reality is, that you can’t always be both.
SHOW NOTES: In our JOYFUL ART OF BUSINESS™ series we explore how to combine the positive benefits of our professional endeavors (“business”) with the overall positive emotional return on our efforts (“joy”). The act of engaging in professional endeavors, in any capacity (i.e., as an employee, employer, entrepreneur, contractor, volunteer, paid, full time, part time, intermittently, etc.) is an expression of our ideas and creative talents (“art”). All of this is in furtherance of our mission to surpass our goals! Our episode today is, “Would you rather be a pig happy or Socrates unhappy?” (i.e., is ignorance bliss?)
Where did the show topic come from?
From a book written by John Stuart Mill. The book is titled, “Utilitarianism” and was first published in 1861.
From Frostburg University, “Is the high-strung and hardworking intellectual superior to the relaxed and benevolent airhead? Considering that high culture requires so much attention and effort, and that it does not seem to pay off too well in terms of sociability and contentment, is it really worth the price it exacts? This is the question that John Stuart Mill tries to answer in the second chapter of his book Utilitarianism (first published in 1861). In that chapter Mill offers the famous judgment (in favor of the New Yorkers, as it were) that "it is better to be a human being dissatisfied than a pig satisfied; better to be Socrates dissatisfied than a fool satisfied." Basically Mill contends that a highly cultured person is a happier person, a person who gets more pleasure out of life than an airhead--even if such a person experiences a great deal of frustration and dissatisfaction as a result of being educated and cultured.” (http:
Our country has some choices to make in the upcoming election. Unfortunately, the reality of the choices is quite different from the way they are framed in the media and by the candidates themselves. We'll take a look at those choices today on the Mike Madison Show
