I never thought I’d be quoting the famously grumpy Lord Sugar on an emotional intelligence blog, but here he is:
“You’ve got to be happy, it’s not just about making money and all that stuff. There should be no drudgery in work. You have to enjoy what you’re doing, and if you don’t, you’d better get out and do something else because you’re not going to be a success.“
– Sir Alan Sugar (as he then was – now he’s a Lord) , interviewed by Liz Hoggard for the London Evening Standard, 26 March 2008
Note for non-UK readers: Lord Sugar fills the Donald Trump role in the UK version of The Apprentice, and it’s riveting viewing!
