Can You Be Happy, Smart and Useful?

I love Derek Sivers. His blog, TED talks and books are amazing. A wonderful writer, Derek can convey complex subjects in a few lines. Case in point is his recent blog entry, “Happy, Smart or Useful”.  If you are making a big decision in life, work or school, this article will really help you. Can you be all three – Happy, Smart and Useful? Derek argues yes, but it will take some effort on your part, and saying no to many things. Related to this is Derek’s  fantastic video blog post “Hell Yes, or No”.
