Someone once told me you can’t go wrong invoking big names to bolster your content. So I’m invoking an old stand-by for this week’s article: Aristotle.

Aristotle – and the Greeks, in general – did a lot of what we don’t seem to do much of – thinking about their thinking.

Ari also came up with an idea that is foundational to personal success and happiness – a principle that eludes us more and more as we negotiate a helter-skelter, tweet-based culture.

It’s another big word – eudaimonia.

Read the Full Article and find out what this twelve-cylinder word means – and then let me know your thoughts.
