Gurbaksh Chahal | The ‘Happiness’ Startup: Rules to Live By

Happiness is elusive without balance. I learned that the hard way. As an entrepreneur, I’ve been fortunate to see financial success but that has little connection to genuine happiness. A famous writer once said, "Don't make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can't [...]

Gurbaksh Chahal | Max Ehrmann’s Desiderata

I ran across a prose poem that was written in 1927 by Max Ehrmann called "Desiderata." It's a beautiful piece of literature that I think we can relate to in all of our lives. Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without [...]

Gurbaksh Chahal | The Art of Negotiation

Negotiating is something we all do on a daily basis. We do it in our personal lives as well as our professional lives. Often, without even thinking about it. But many people find it difficult when negotiating in a formal business setting. They become intimidated and tongue-tied. They give away real dollars and percentages without [...]

Gurbaksh Chahal | Your IQ vs. EQ. What matters more?

We’re all intelligent—in one way or another. The architect uses a different kind of intelligence to a neurologist; a master carpenter is different to a scientist; a concert pianist to a mathematician; a motivational speaker to…well, you get the point. There are different ways of acknowledging and measuring intelligence and the idea of a fixed [...]

The nation's #1 talked about TV show, Empire, ended its premiere yesterday. It broke records every week, gathering an audience of over 20 million+ viewers.

Gurbaksh Chahal | Don’t Play the Game. Change the Game.

If you play the game of routine, you'll never understand the game of disruption. Doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting scattered results was defined as insanity, famously by Einstein. As humans, we look for comfort, security, and happiness. Although most will only achieve two, humans tend to adapt quickly to steady routines. We, as [...]

Gurbaksh Chahal | 10 Things to Avoid on the Journey to Happiness

I’ve often talked about the journey to happiness as being the most important thing in life.

Gurbaksh Chahal | In The Pursuit of Happyness

"Don’t ever let someone tell you that you can’t do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you gotta protect it. When people can’t do something themselves, they’re gonna tell you that you can’t do it. You want something, go get it. Period." In one of my favorite movies of all time, Will Smith plays Chris Gardner [...]
