How to Buy Happiness

You know that popular saying “Money can’t buy happiness.”  Well, Michael Norton says that’s wrong. He says “If you think money can’t buy happiness, you’re not spending it right.”

He backs this up with research that demonstrates that when people buy the right things they’re actually happier. Not only does buying the right things create personal happiness, but employees who buy the right things help make companies more successful. These purchasing guidelines even work for sports teams who began to win more when they followed them.

Since it’s that time of year, when we’re spending more money on happiness, I thought you might like to take 10:41 to watch the video and find out what the guidelines are, how little money it takes, and how the data shows that you really can buy happiness. Or drop down to the transcript and read.

Enjoy!

I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.
