In Jeff Selingo’s Best Advice column, he recently suggested that in the game of life, the rule of thirds is key. Many of us don’t know what to do next or what would make us happy. One of Jeff’s valued mentors told him to ask himself three questions whenever he was at a cross-roads:
- Are you happy with your job?
- Are you happy where you live?
- Are you happy with the people/person you’re with (depending on your circumstances that could mean friends, spouse, partner, etc).
If you answer “Yes” to at least two out of three, you have found your spot for the moment. If not, you need to make a change in at least one area.
