October 9, 2017-Happiness depends on our focus

Hello October,

“Your happiness is determined by how you allocate your attention”, Prof. Dolan says, and it seems quiet an interesting idea;

so let’s see where my attention will go for the day. Because attention is the glue that holds our life together.

And by the way, happiness is both feeling pleasure and purpose.

Ok, I think I got it.

There is pleasure in being where I am right now, drinking a nice cup of coffee.

When my attention goes to the next part of the day, where I need to negotiate my rent, the attention goes to some worry thing.

When I think why I got into this, and it’s because I have a purpose, it feels better already.
