Chasing Happiness

According to Aldous Huxley “Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness: it is generally the by-product of other activities.”

I think he has a point.

This got me thinking, how many different nouns could I substitute in the quote for “Happiness”?

1.  Fun
2.  Money
3.  Love
4.  Acceptance
5.  Success

With a bit of time you could create quite a long list.

Perhaps pursuing profit, employee engagement or cost savings is not the wisest course of action.

Maybe they are the by-products of customer service, rewarding jobs or right first time delivery.
