Happiness Quotient

You’ve all likely heard about the Intelligence Quotient, or IQ.  IQ is a score derived from one of several different standardized tests designed to assess intelligence.  And if you really desire to learn more about IQ, you can go here:  Wikipedia.

And while many people believe that your IQ is very important in life, I’d like to offer a different possibility.

Happiness Quotient

If there were a series of standardized tests to assess happiness, or joy, what would your HQ score be?

Probably not something you’ve ever even thought about, right?

Well, let’s think about it a bit.  What is your “happiness quotient” or what would it be if there were a test?  Would it be high?  Or would it be average?

Be honest.  You’re not answering me here…you’re answering yourself, so please be honest with yourself.

Happiness Can Change

Your HQ might change a bit from day-to-day, depending on how each day goes.  You may have a day of let’s say 100HQ and a day of 45HQ.  Overall, though, there should be a trend.  Overall, you should see a predominant set of numbers, either on the high side or the low side.

Maybe Joy Would Be Better Here

Maybe it would be better to use a Joy Quotient?  Since joy is what we are.  And happiness ebbs and flows with our circumstances.  But joy is pretty constant…true joy.

Either way…

I’d like to invite you to examine your HQ or JQ, whichever you prefer.  Take an honest look at your daily life and determine whether you’re an all-around “happy person” or whether you might desire to do some things to raise your HQ.

Tomorrow

We’ll examine how this might be important a little more in-depth.

Much Gratitude,
Sarah
