An algorithm for happiness

  • Life is a mix of successes and problems – hopefully linked
  • Happiness with no root is delirium and has no purpose
  • Windfall money that is not worked for is not as sweet as that which comes from toil
  • Happiness is not a result, but a journey and the linking of the two can define mundane or otherwise (objectively/conventionally unhappy) situations as happy (example: enjoying and old car)
  • Contentment is a starting point pr a state of being that can be context or precede the more ephemeral result of happiness (causal)

What Next?

  • Document and triage my problems so that I can isolate and live with context (things I cannot change)
  • Create a clear path from what is (problems) and the desired (solutions) so that there is constant movement from problems I can solve, so linked solutions
  • Internal feeling of “can do”, – let us examine how that can breed contentment and inner peace
