“Try to find someone who does things right that you really aspire to be over the course of your career.”
Simon Puleston Jones, CEO of FIA Europe, gives advice for balancing personal life with career life. Puleston Jones begins his presentation with an acronym for “DREAM”, discussing how happiness and achieving your goals is related to Diligence and drive, Relationships and recruitment, Education and ethics, Adjustments and appreciation, and Mistakes and mentors. He stresses that your career should be something you truly enjoying waking up for and how some perks such as fancy cars and large boats can be outweighed by having a family and raising children. Puleston Jones shows that happiness is not about materialistic possessions, but rather the relationships you build with others and the experiences you have throughout your life.
