I just read this great post by Mike Masnick, founder of the widely read Techdirt blog, and also founder of the Techdirt Insight Community (of which I'm a member).
The post says it all, so I don't really need to comment - though it might not be about what you think it is - based on the title :). Hint - it's not just about personal happiness, but is related to innovation and to how we perceive the happenings in the world around us.
It's worth a read, IMO:
