Alisa Shabanova Posted almost 3 years ago Stefan Sagmeister: 7 rules for making more happiness I think that happiness is irreducible to the list of reasons titled ‘7 steps to happiness’ or ‘7 things making me happy’ or something so banal. Again and again every new list is toppled down by the more market or more fashion approach. Undoubtedly happiness is the derivate of a lot of reasons but all we know that two different people feel themselves very different in completely the same situation. I suppose that happiness strongly depends on personal ability matching inner vision and outer reality. I mean that our inner perception - dreams, expectations, and our real life - opportunities, achievements are always very different so we need to have a sophisticated mechanism for conciliation these two worlds. If we do it well, if we build a good bridge between dreams and reality we feel ourselves happy (or at least satisfied). If this gap is too big or if we cannot make these two worlds friends we can be healthy, have a nice family, good carrier, participate in interesting projects or everything else - we will feel ourselves unhappy.
