pursuit of happiness week

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. – Mahatma Ghandi

This week is Pursuit of Happiness Week, although I think the group that originated it no longer exists. Although I can’t find anything current about it, I thought it was a concept worth examining.

We spend time thinking about work, finances, family or relationship issues, but how much time do any of us spend thinking about happiness?

If you’re wondering what happiness has to do with organizing and productivity, consider that clutter and disorganization create unhappiness for many people. In addition, there are people who spend time (and money) on unproductive habits because they aren’t happy.

Maybe thinking about what really makes you happy could improve your productivity. I used to scoff at “happiness journals,” where people would keep track of things that brought them joy. Now, though, I’m starting to think it might be a good idea to write down one positive thing each day. So far, it’s just an idea, but I’m getting closer to actually making it a reality.

What do you think? Would you keep a list of things that make you happy?
