Issue #49: Happiness is unachievable
By Ross Chapman • Issue #49 • View online
It’s around this time of year that I start looking towards the next. What do I want to do? What do I want to change?
Usually this would lead me to think of how I can be happier. Darius Foroux thinks this is unachievable. in his post “The Purpose Of Life Is Not Happiness: It’s Usefulness”. He states that “happiness can’t be a goal in itself. Therefore, it’s not something that’s achievable.”
He suggests we should instead think about how we can be more useful. He continues “it’s not anything big. But when you do little useful things every day, it adds up to a life that is well lived. A life that mattered.”
