Squaring The Curve #1 — “Happiness”
Here are three things to think about or do to “get happier” (even if just a little bit), this week:
1). What is your “mighty purpose” (there is no age limit to having one)?
This is the true joy in life: The being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one. The being a force of nature rather than … complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.
(George Bernard Shaw, Irish playwright, 1856–1950)
2). Can “things” make you happier? Yes, but not always and they don’t have to be expensive…
Think about one material possession that simply makes you happier ever time you use it (examples for me are Pilot G2 Gel pens and my cheap, yet indestructible, Casio G-Shock watch). Is there one thing (costing less than $100) that you would use almost every day that would add pleasure or joy?
