I’ve been a pretty voracious podcast listener for several years and one of the ‘casts on my list these days is Happier with Gretchen Rubin. This morning when I hopped into the car to head to the office, a new episode was awaiting me that I thought was really great:
When I was writing my book The Happiness Project, I asked her, “What do you think is the secret of a happy life?” I was surprised by her answer, but as I thought about it, I’ve understood more and more what a good answer it is.
Justice O’Connor’s response was “work worth doing.” If you take this as a reference to the broad virtue of productivity — which is how I think it is intended — this is a pretty profound statement.
Something to ponder!
