105. A measure of happiness based on the triad Must, Can, Want.

Here is a way to measure your natural flow of activities in life, as being unobstructed according to our desires (close to happiness) or full of frustration and unhappiness.

Let us mark ourselves for 3 weeks every nights, of daily activities of that day, what mark they get from 1 to 10, on the three independent factors MUST, CAN, WANT.

Then  we calculate  the average and the standard deviation  of each marked factor of the sample.

If the result is a triad with a high score on the  WANT and satisfactory score on the can, e.g. (MUST=6.5, CAN=5, WANT=8.5) , then your days are close to happiness.
But if they are with low score on the WANT, high score in the MUST etc (e.g. MUST=10 CAN=3 WANT=2 ) then your days are close to unhappiness. 

Of course peace of mind  and happiness comes also when we feel that we accomplish gradually our true goals. And there are minor and major goals in life. We might say that our existence has no other goal than to exist. Or that we may have many different goals, according to the scale of relevance in our existence. But one of the most beautiful and meaningful goals in life is to develop more of our soul consciousness. So all other minor goals like social success, money, fame, knowledge , creativity etc are to serve this major goal of developing more of our soul consciousness
