Doing things well makes us feel good. The secret to happiness (50% Genes, 40% Habits, 10% Education) is one-upmanship. Coming up with solutions to one-up the competition. Knowing that we are on top of our game fulfills the competitiveness gap and creates joy. Seeing the bigger picture despite any forgone conclusion. Allowing us to be proud in any given arena by creating one-upmanship happiness.
“Happiness needs one-upmanship.”
