“Plenty of people miss their share of happiness, not because they never found it, but because they didn’t stop to enjoy it.”

—William Feather, 20th Century American Writer and Publisher

Take a few minutes to observe the pace of life around you. Many people describe their days as busy, hectic, stressful, maybe even chaotic.

In many ways our fast-paced, multi-tasking world makes us very productive. Yet, we are often so driven we miss the stop signs that can help us fully appreciate and enjoy the moments.


Where and in what ways can you slow down your pace of life to more fully enjoy it, and experience your share of happiness?

  1. Thanks for the reminder, Barry. As a high-achiever, I often find myself going too fast in order to reach my goals and forget how happiness happens right now, not tomorrow, not in 10 years.

    As for your exercise, I’ve established a rather efficient schedule that mostly allows me to take the evening off. I’m not always in my best mood by then though, stuck worrying about this and that. But today, I’ll be present and enjoy myself when I’m home.

    Thanks for the reminder. 😉 I hope you enjoy your share of happiness as well.
