one day I will be cool

Today I thought the same thing as Hugh McLeod - so if that doesn't make me totally cool I don't know what will ...

I was reading the Jack Welch autobiography and realised: I will probably never be the CEO of a huge company like GE ... one day. And I also realised: that's ok. I'll be quite happy being CEO of a company 1/10th the size ...

I confess however, that as heres and nows go, my here and now is pretty good. It's a relaxing thought. Simply accepting, as Dhaval put it. More (money/fame/holidays/children/private jets/whatever) would be good, but not worth sacrificing the peace of mind that comes with acceptance.
