My Thoughts on Happiness – My Interview with a #1 NY Times Best Selling Author

July 29, 2010          Comments (3)


As you know, I’m very interested in the subject of happiness.

Here’s a question for you: What is your goal in life?

When I ask people this question, I get a lot of different answers. Whatever your goal is, think about the answer to the next question: Why? And then keep asking yourself why.

What’s so fascinating to me is that if you keep asking yourself, “Why?” enough times, you’ll arrive at the same answer that most people do. We’re all doing what we do because we believe it’ll ultimately make us happier.

I think the end goal of anything we do is: happiness.

As Aristotle said, “Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.”

However, I think happiness is a very ambiguous term. Instead, I’m very interested in how I can become happier (and how I can help other people become happier). Not that I’m unhappy. I’ve always been a very happy person. But why not be as happy as I possibly can be?

These questions and thoughts are what led me to write all of these posts.

So I was very flattered (and very excited) when #1 NY Times Best Selling Author Gretchen Rubin of the Happiness Project interviewed me on her blog. As you know, I’m a huge fan of her work. Her book is a must-read.

I hope you enjoy it!
