Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of……..

Recently in a leadership group we were discussing happiness, and did a round-robin self-assessment of our levels of happiness.  We all agreed we were a pretty happy group.  This was especially true of one of our members who just got a new, and apparently more interesting and pleasant boss.

Happiness is explicitly noted in the Declaration of Independence, so Americans have been striving for this fine state of being for some time.

There are now tests to measure the level of our happiness and there seems to be some agreement on what are the core causal variables that produce happiness.
