Curt - thinking of 100 things that make me happy is tough stuff, and a good challenge for all of us. Perhaps breaking it up into a weekly project, consisting of 7 groups of 14 for a total of 98, plus 2 extras you can do on the first day would be a good way to attack this. Thanks for sharing!

Curt Rosengren

Great idea Phil. And that has the added benefit of keeping your ongoing focus on things that make you happy.

It is always better to take congnizance of the little, little things that make you happy. The grand slam of happiness according to me is the right occupation because that is where a majority of waking hours go. Thomas Edision aptly said, " I never worked in my life. It was all fun" despite 20 hour work days.
It is for this reason it is said that work is not part of life but life itself. Right occupation is like breathing- one simply must have it and though there are posts on this site which suggest that career- change is a long process, my personal feeling is that ways must be found to expedite this process. Just as aeroplanes were invented for faster transport, ways and means must be invented to master the inner self to enable people to know themselves. This is even more important than transport since we are talking in the context of happiness.

One should not be made to wait to breathe. One should not wait to be happy. Right occupation is a necesity, not a luxury because it has a direct bearing on happiness.
Being happy(absorbed in work) can make you meditative but being meditative cannot make you happy as explained in detail in "Career Meditation."

One thing that deserves a mention- if you are unhappy for a major part of your waking hours, it can spill on to other areas-family life, social life, financial freedom, social reputation, hobbies etc. It would truly then prove to be the grand slam of unhappiness
