Maximizing via Listening

The best approach of maximizing our degrees of happiness is trial and error paying attention to the quality of our inner experiences.

As Thoreau once said, “Life is too short to be in a hurry.”

Abraham Maslow maintains that a person “cannot choose wisely for a life unless he dares to listen to himself, his own self, at each moment in life.”

Each of us enjoys and derives meaning from different activities, and to varying degrees…Identifying the right activity, and then the right quantity for each of the identified right activity, leads to the highest quality of life.  

I believe that we must truly listen to both our hearts (our emotions) and minds (our reasons).
