Short on time today but I read two of the best posts I've seen in a long time. I want to share them and when I say "share" I mean these are must reads for you.

Fred Wilson on personality types and managing a business (or a country in this case). I'll talk more about this at a later time. Let's just say that my experience in the family business (my mother's Elegant Clutter), investment banking (Hambrecht & Quist), business school (Kellogg) and working with startups in venture debt at Lighthouse has given me access and insight into these personality types. Fascinating stuff.

Seth Godin on Workaholics, but the good kind, if there is such a thing, and I believe there is. Many of my friends, and family members, and myself fit this description perfectly. If I were to name my 10 most successful or likely to be successful friends, they would all fit this description. And I'm not defining success as wealth accumulation, but happiness. However they often go together.

Listen to this song while you read. Just a cool song.
