How to measure happiness

As my birthday approached this year, I had a conversation with my wife, which made me realize that I used to dread my birthdays. Why? I felt the pressure to show myself that with each increasing year on this planet, I had an increase in status to prove I’m on the right track. So, for example, in my mid-thirties, when I was still single, and the pay raises at my job stopped due to to a downturn, I felt disappointed. 

Even last year, as I married the woman of my dreams, I felt uneasy when it came to my future career as I just took a big step of faith by quitting my job to start a new business.

So where am I now?

I realize that if accomplishments are the measuring unit, I will play a losing game. Whatever I accomplish, there’s always more, and there will be at least one person who can do it better. 

That’s why I’m a firm believer in the quality of relationships as the most useful indicator of progress. More specifically: 

  • How many people can I have an honest conversation with?
  • How many people can I be myself with?

And because the number for both is way higher than last year, I feel a whole lot happier 

How many people can you have an honest conversation with? How many people can you be yourself with?
