Even when things go our way, we could do a better job of savoring the moment.
Fast, connected living prevents us from fully appreciating the good things that happen.
We move on too fast.
In fact, we tend to spend more time on things that irritate us than on things that bring great joy.
All the books, TED talks, podcasts and pep talks are useless unless we don’t postpone joy.
Nail it? Enjoy the fruits of your labor.
Proud of your children? Don’t rush the great feeling of pride and happiness.
To be tough on yourself or others affects joy.
Enough good things happen to everyone – even people in stressful situations – to make a conscious attempt not to postpone the critical feeling of joy in our lives.
