Gordon Gekko Was Wrong

Image result for gordon gekkoGordon Geckko was wrong.  Greed is not good especially if you want to live a long and happy life. Researchers at the University of Notre Dame reached that conclusion after analyzing the lives of more than 700 ambitious high achievers, many of whom graduated from power schools like Harvard and Yale. “Ambitious people do achieve more successful careers, but that does not seem to translate into leading happier or healthier lives,” says Professor Timothy Judge. “Despite their many accomplishments, ambitious people end up only slightly happier than their less ambitious counterparts, and they actually live somewhat shorter lives. “The investments they make in their careers come at the expense of healthy behaviors, stable relationships and deep social networks. “If you want your children to lead happy and healthy lives, you might not want to overemphasize professional success. There are limits to what our ambitions can bring up or our children.”
