Last year Harry Grain worked for a big bank in the city of London. He had a great salary, a lovely house, and
drove an expensive car. Harry thought he had everything he wanted. But one day all that changed. Harry had a
heart attack. He was in hospital for five weeks. In fact, he nearly died. I worked myself almost to death, said
Harry. I was the person who always had to be the best, drive the fastest car and earn the biggest salary, but I
wasnt happy. I was stressed all the time. When he left the hospital, Harry changed his life dramatically. He left
his job at the bank, bought a new, smaller house, and started work as a gardener. Ive always wanted to work
outside, he said. Now I get much more exercise and I spend more time with my family. I live in a smaller house. I
realised I dont have to always be the best. My life is much quieter and simpler now and Im much happier.
