When I was watching the last summer Olympics, I learned that the Bhutanese have a Minister for Happiness. Really. It seems this point also caught the eye of Richard Branson, one of my favorite fellow entrepreneurs, who is known for having fun, doing good, and making scads of money.
But, he insists, money is a by-product of pursuing and realizing one’s more personal, meaningful goals, such as those centered around happiness and well-being.
Wouldn’t life be grand if we all focused on “gross national happiness” like Bhutan? Maybe we can. Start small, start with you. Start today.
So, how do you measure success?
