As many of you know I’m a fan of solutions-focused approaches to change and the flow chart below gives us the most basic process for being happy. I found it on Dr. Paolo Terni Solutions Surfer’s blog. Basically, if you aren’t happy and you want to be then change something. If you aren’t happy and you don’t want to be then keep doing what you’re already doing.
This may be annoyingly simple for those of us who have spent lots of money on self-help and therapy but you do have to appreciate the simplicity and that it puts the responsibility directly with us to keep making changes rather than expecting something external to us to change instead.
