Happiness cannot be pursued


"We fail to attain pleasures if we deliberately seek them."

The Paradox of Hedonism points out that pleasure cannot be acquired directly, it can only be acquired indirectly.

Happiness is a consequence

"Happiness is not a reward - it is a consequence"


"The more time that individuals spend with their partners, best friends, and close friends, the happier they are. When they spend time with people who they dislike or when they spend time alone, their happiness levels drop. Loneliness is a relatively good predictor of unhappiness." (Mogilner, The Pursuit of Happiness: Time, Money, and Social Connection)

From the article "If Money Doesn't Make You Happy, Consider Time" (Stanford research):
http://www.gsb.stanford.edu/news/research/aaker_happiness_2011.html

Summary - time-spending happiness principles:

1) Spend time with the right people.
2) Spend time on the right activities.
3) Enjoy experiences before the experience (without spending time actually doing them).
4) Be aware that happiness changes over time.

"I've found much more freedom in needing less than in having more.". Quote from Joshua Spodek - that also commented about the article in his blog http://joshuaspodek.com/money-doesnt-happy-time

When there is no room for waste we need to be creative

"Constraints are advantages in disguise. Limited resources force you to make do with what you’ve got. There’s no room for waste. And that forces you to be creative."


(Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson, from 37 Signals)

Steve Jobs quote

"Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."

- Steve Jobs
