Future Fulfilment Trumps Current Happiness

The happiest people are not the ones who achieve the most. They are the ones who spend more time than others in a state of flow.
Hector Garcia Puigcerver

We have all had those days that were fun while we were having them, but then regret them later. It may be that we watched Netflix and really enjoyed the show but then regretted that we wasted an evening.

The definition I am using for happiness is – satisfaction or happiness as a result of fully developing one’s abilities or character.

When we are growing our lives have meaning.

Give yourself the choice between what gives you momentary happiness today versus fulfillment tomorrow.

Happiness today could be watching Netflix, and fulfillment tomorrow would be going to the gym.

The activities that create fulfillment will grow as time goes on, and happiness activities will fade. Going to the gym and feeling healthy pays dividends over time, Netflix will be forgotten after a while.
