Although I would put this “happiness formula” first…
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well (Matthew 6:33, NIV).
…this one from Scott Adams (in <em>How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big</em>) seems pretty good:
Recapping the happiness formula:
Get enough sleep.
Imagine an incredible future (even if you don’t believe it).
Work toward a flexible schedule.
Do things you can steadily improve at.
Help others (if you’ve already helped yourself).
Reduce daily decisions to routine.
What do you think? How do you rate? (I’ve got a ways to go on quite a few of them.)
