The Dark Horse Project is a long-term study of how women and men achieve success by harnessing their individuality. Most traditional research on success asks the question, “What is the best way to achieve success?” We are instead asking, “What is the best way for you to achieve success?”
"They found that people found happiness through the relentless pursuit of fulfillment. The act of seeking fulfillment brought them success and happiness, instead of fulfillment as a consequence of obtaining mastery in a chosen field.
Their work looked at people who are masters of their craft, but totally unhappy at work, because they’re unfulfilled. The dark horses are individual. They each found pride and happiness in different aspects of their work. There is no formula. Just a basic compass heading."

Stress is simply inevitable in the lives of CxOs, entrepreneurs, and people who want to achieve a lot in any activity. Here I'm speaking from my personal experience first and foremost.
Managed stress allows you to achieve high productivity, but if unmanaged - it leads to burnout and a whole bunch of other problems. Again, personal experience.
Since I am constantly striving for the highest possible productivity, and would not want to burn-out again, I pay a lot of attention to the topic of stress management. At the same time, I think this is very relevant for many others as well.
Dealing with stress is hard. Cannot deny that.
On the other hand, the main principles are fairly simple - sports, sleep, nutrition, and recreation.
Anyone can (and should) become better at dealing with stress. I can't help but emphasize the analogy with sports that I like so much:
In sports, the main progress does not occur during hard workouts, but rather because of proper recovery. Well - rest, sleep, nutrition. Then proper recovery can lead to even better results. And so the cycle repeats.
Isn’t it the same with stress? I would say YES!
I can boldly state that the secret to overcoming big challenges, implementing “impossible” projects, having the desire (yes, desire!) to work extremely hard, give everything, and then some more is MEANING.
One might ask how do you define meaning?
It's very individual. To do something that no one has done before, to create, to change, to discover, to solve, to learn ... Also, to get recognition. By the way, recognition in most studies is # 1.
By the way, for me recognition is also of the highest importance.
And what about money?
Research clearly shows that money is among the least motivating factors for people. Especially in the long run.
On the other hand, even money could be successfully linked to a meaning - maybe for someone making as much money as possible is the ultimate meaning...
What is meaning to you?
