Meaning, Balance & Productivity

An awesome quote about perspective for entrepreneurs out in the battle field from Jung (thanks to Carter Cast for sending over).

Mike Cassidy of Google, Microsoft, Xfire, Direct Hit fame ($1B), spoke at the DFJ CEO summit. When asked how hard does he burn his teams, he said home by 6:30 for balance (works email at night). Jason Fried wrote his team does more with their new 4 day week. Points out the law of diminishing returns, albeit more on the extreme.

“I have frequently seen people become neurotic when they content themselves with inadequate or wrong answers to the questions of life. They seek position, marriage, reputation, outward success, money, and remain unhappy and neurotic even when they have attained what they were seeking. Such people are usually confined within too narrow a spiritial horizon. Their life has not sufficient content, sufficient meaning. If they are enabled to develop into more spacious personalities, the neurosis generally disappears.”
