Make meaning, not money
There's science behind the saying, "Money doesn't buy happiness." A study from the University of Rochester tracked recent graduates and found that those who achieved goals related to personal growth, relationships, and community were happier than their peers who achieved goals related to fame, money, or image. "The American dream may focus on goals such as wealth and fame," says Edward Deci, Ph.D., one of the authors of the study. "But the study has shown that the pursuit of meaningful relationships or community involvement can lead to less anxiety and greater happiness."
