How to be succesful? Be naughty and misbehave!

Share this post:

John Cohn is an American engineer, best known as the engineer scientist in the Discovery Channel TV show, The Colony. He is an IBM Fellow in the Internet of Things division.

He held an amazing lecture at Origo, the information technology services company, about how people should play at work, claiming to take time every day or every week to try to learn or create something new.

You must be a bit naughty and misbehave. Why do I say that? Because we are so busy; and always have many things under construction.

This way you will be able to maintain your happiness and passion.

Watch the video below to see John Cohns advice on how to get and maintain a successful yet fulfilling career, tackeling issues such as commiting time for your career but also yourself.

So remember: Keep things playful. Bring a playful spirit into your work.
