After reading ‘Delivering Happiness’ by Tony Hsieh (How does one pronounce his name?) I realised that I too enjoy experiences more than whatever new game or gadget I buy myself.
Less material. More substance. Fulfillment.
A great example is the dinners I’ve been having with friends every Friday the last three weeks. Fun experiences. That’s it. Experiences.
Oh. And of course: Little acts of WOW-ness. The element of surprise can put a smile on people’s faces. Love it! I’m going to try to do these on a weekly basis. Did one yesterday, so I’m safe for this week. Kidding! There are no constraints. Leaving some happiness on someone’s doorstep is a way of catering it to yourself. So go forth! There’s nothing wrong with happy people!
The book, ‘Delivering Happiness’. Great story. Fun to read. Gets you thinking.
