Humans are wired to growth. Long lasting happiness comes from setting big goals and meeting them. It comes from the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.

And since work already makes a major part of your life, you should strive to make it significant. Even if sometimes isn’t that much fun, you know you’re doing the right thing. There’s nothing to regret.

Use work to achieve what you want for your life. Use it to achieve happiness. Use it to make the next year the greatest so far.

In 2014, if you want happiness, choose work.
