Thought of the day

Happiness = R/E (Reality divided by Expectation)

half full or half empty?

In order to be “happy”,  one can either

a) Increase the satisfation of your reality.  ie.  make more money.

or

b) Diminish your expectation.  If you expect less, you will have less disappointment.

In my opinion, it is easier to constrain ones’ expectation than changing the reality, something that you cannot control.  But when we are worrying about something insignificant, we should remember there are people worrying about not having clean water to drink in this world.

    未了解怎麼抱樂觀心態可參考半杯水的哲學便會懂
    得失取決於看待杯中水半杯滿還是半空

    Haha. I can see how the glass of water is relating to happiness.
    I see it as half full.
