Happiness has a formula?

Was reading through my RSS feeds this morning when this gem from the Dilbert blog came to my attention.

To be happy, truly skipping-along-all-day happy, you need to be successful in the following 3 areas (and I quote):

  1. Relationships
  2. Health
  3. Income

Realistically, you will only have time to accomplish any two of
those goals while bitching about the third. The day isn’t long enough
to do them all.”

I think happiness is a matter of balance. A person who can skillfully balance all 3 areas of happiness successfully is probably going to find himself/herself deliriously happy most the time. Such persons would definitely be violating some natural law and are only waiting for “the universe to smite them”, of course. :)
