The Happiness Project

A chronicle of my attempts to test-drive every tip, principle and scientific study that promotes happiness

A Very Big Question. What’s Your Answer?

Here’s a question for you.

Here’s a question for you.

2013 is almost here (how did that happen, by the way?). If, by the end of 2013, you could magically change one aspect of your life, what would you change? What single thing would add the most to your happiness?

You know my next question.

With that aim in mind, can you come up with concrete, manageable steps that would help you accomplish it?

As I’ve worked on my happiness projects, I’ve been surprised to discover how easy it is to be unhappy with some aspect of my life, but somehow never try to do anything about it. And many times, once I tried to do something about it, it wasn’t even very hard to improve it.
