What is the story of your personal mission?

Hi Users,

What is the story of your personal mission? It could be small or big. Fully, partially successful or not at all successful. It could be things like restorating your dream car, building a house, finding your past, quitting a job to do something else. Doesn't matter how ridiculous and unimportant it seems to others as long its important to you.

Would love to hear your Story's?

Kind Regards,

Marco

      Jul 31 2013: Dude, shoot me an e-mail through TED about that and I'll listen, sounds interesting. Not sure what you're idea of skepticism is, because it sure isn't what I thought it was. Organizational psychopathy sounds interesting.

        Aug 1 2013: Check out skeptopathy.com to find out what skepticism is and what it is not.

        Organizational psychopathy deals with what happens to psychopaths when they enter organizations. The evidence shows that they rise up quickly through the ranks. It shows that the higher a person is in any power hierarchy the more likely he will be a psychopath. (See the books "Snakes in Suits" and "Corporate Psychopaths" for the research.) This logically implies that psychopaths will tend to occupy the positions of greatest power in the world. That is the world is probably run by psychopaths.
