“My goal is just to be happy this year. How can I achieve it?” I get asked this a lot.

I tell this person that they have the wright goal.

Everyone chases after happiness, but who really understands it? The answer is: not many people. According to the WHO, over 300 million people worldwide of all ages suffer from depression.

person is more unhappy because of not himself , but because of other people. People drive him, people carry him, people control . I do agree that one cannot survive without people. You have to be with people.

But selection of people, is under your control. You decide at what distance you should NEWS Paper to read or T. V. Set to see T.V.

i believe, none can make you unhappy or happy. You make your selves happy or unhappy. It is you who decide to be happy or unhappy, not people.

Stop pursuing happiness

It sounds counter-intuitive. Almost non-sensical. But hear me out. We think the ultimate happiness means being happy all the time, every single second of every single day, to have zero pain and negativity.

Could you be happy permanently ? Do you have guarantee?

My answer is ‘NO’

Stop pursuing better things. Instead, pursue better time.

We put enormous effort into improving the quality of the things we have (better house, better car, better phone, etc.) In comparison, how much effort do you spend on improving the quality of your time?

Pivot your value system. Imagine what would happen if you decided to earn quality time the way you earn money.
