Finding Happiness

marshall-Goldsmith Marshall Goldsmith’s study into happiness reveals an incredibly high correlation between people’s happiness & meaning at work & at home. Happiness has got more to do with us than the job or manager or community or anything else.

The study also finds that stimulating activities (high short term satisfaction) are as important as purposeful activities (high long term benefit) in the pursuit of happiness.

Some takeaways from the study:

  • Reduce TV watching & surfing the web (for non-professional purposes)
  • Spend time exercising & with people you love
  • Challenge yourself
  • Do fewer chores (as you define it).
