    You may very well be right. So what is your suggestion?

    EDIT: Please be specific. No pithy one liners.

    Think of happiness as the car you drive in, instead of a destination.

    Can't really get anymore specific than that, because happiness is on the same level as taste. Just figure out what makes you happy, then do it on a daily basis.

    Yes. I've come to the conclusion that it's not where the path takes you, but the path itself. Life is not about birth or death; life is about living. That being said, I operate entirely off goal and plans. So my path is typically a gradient of goal-points. Small victories, brief amusements. All in a direction I enjoy.

    I thought that was more INFP\INTP territory.

    Then how is he doing it wrong if he sees happiness as a goal?

    You've basically said the same thing.

    No one views happiness as some kind of destination. That doesn't make sense. Happiness is a continual thing.

    My life goal is to work as little as possible while maximizing gains.
    Embrace the possibilities.

    I hate getting all INTP on people, but...


    Definitions of goal:

    the state of affairs that a plan is intended to achieve and that (when achieved) terminates behavior intended to achieve it;

    finish: the place designated as the end (as of a race or journey);
