according to the experts goals should be measurable. So although measuring happiness sounds iffy, I decided to use various quizzes to get a sense of my "happiness score". Before doing the quizzes I thought about how I would rate my happiness on the scale 1-10, and decided on 7. Not bad, not excellent, perhaps slightly above average. I was surprised to find that according to most of the quizzes I am relatively unhappy, i.e. my scores are usually somewhat below the averages. It will be interesting to see whether my scores will go up in the next few months!
