Luck is more than the absence of bad luck, like health is more than the absence of illness.
The german term for luck 'Glück' can additionally be translated as happiness and well-being.
Psychology differentiates between two concepts of Glück:
Hedonism is the experience of joy, fun and pleasure while avoiding pain and discomfort. In this concept the key to maximise happiness is to pursue positive emotions and avoid the negative ones.
It focus more on short-term gratification.
Eudaimonism can be translated with the 'divine inner self'. It is about the pursuit to live a meaningful and fulfilling life.
Happiness is derived from finding a sense of purpose, living in accordance to one's core-values (authenticity), reaching one's best potential (excellency) and having a positive impact on the world.
It focus more on long-term well-being.
Psychology doesn't like horse-race comparisons. Both concepts aren't contradictory, but complementary. To understand this we apply both concepts on workplaces.
Bullshit Jobs (grey) – ↓ HH, ↓ EH
Pleasant Jobs (yellow) – ↑ HH, ↓ EH
Self-sacrificing Jobs (white green) – ↓ HH, ↑ EH
Profession (green) – ↑ HH, ↑ EH
Pleasure as well as purpose are important to live a happy life.
Synergise both in creating good habits. A joyful reward after 'eating the daily frog' task.
The world isn't black and white, it's full of colours. Learn to see these to reach balance. It all starts with your perception.

The pursuit of happiness is not to flee into your dreams, but to live your dreams. And it all starts with how you define happiness in your life and how you perceive it.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
