I can't quite remember when I heard Tim say this - but I found it to be fascinating. I don't consider myself a Type A personality - but I certainly spend vast amounts of time pondering life and why we behave the way we do. I hope you take something from it as I did:
'Type A personalities have goal pursuit as default hard wiring. This is excellent for pursing achievement, but also anxiety, as you are constantly future focused. Achievement is merely a passing grade in life - it's a C+ that gets you limping along to the next grade, in the right direction. But for anything approaching happiness, you have to want what you already have, which takes perspective. Because if you don't want and like what you have, nothing you get will ever will make you happy'
