Pick Goals That Will Actually Make You Happy. A lot of times we fall into the trap of going after the *external* markers of success. But we need to pay attention to what the scientists say: happiness
precedes success! In other words, happy people succeed. So we need to logically figure out which goals will actually boost our happiness! Then we’re gonna let success become a byproduct. BAM!
What NOT to Do: Go After *Extrinsic* Goals. We need to understand that our society is backwards when it comes to goals. It tells us to chase fame, wealth, and hotness. But we scientifically know that if we’re going after those goals that we’ll be less physiologically stable (even if we’re succeeding!). *Intrinsic* goals are the ones that actually lead to happiness. So we want to pursue things like personal growth, making a contribution, and investing in deep social relationships.
