There is a happiness model which most people follow in life - the thinking goes like this:
Great Work = Big Success = Be Happy
In real life the model does not work like that since most people tend to set new goals once they reach a previous one - why stop at a college degree if you can get a master's, why stop at being a Manager if you can become a Director; people tend to focus on the next job, next degree, next promotion.
We never get to happiness since it gets pushed further and further away.
What happens if we snap "Be Happy" off the end and stick it at the beginning?
Be Happy = Great Work = Big Success
So what is the first thing you must do in order to be happy?
Be Happy FIRST.
