    The following op-ed appeared in The Wall Street Journal on 15 April 2022. Several weeks ago, I posted the first three paragraphs, but I am now permitted to post the entire text.

    Happiness Is a Warm Company?
    J. Budziszewski


    “A hot course at Harvard Business School promises to teach future leaders an elusive skill—managing happiness,” according to a recent Wall Street Journal article. This development was expected. After languishing for decades in philosophy departments, the study of happiness has become a growth industry.

    Paying more attention to human well-being is a good thing, and those who try to teach happiness “skills” deserve an A for effort. But does the “happiness studies” approach get its subject entirely right?

    Interesting, but I think they got it wrong.
    Happiness is a short term goal, and it's also a very flexible goal that keeps changing, depending on what is happening in Life.
    Happiness for a teenager is far different than a post grad seeking to make an impression.
    And far different from a family man seeking job stability, and finally different again from a widow alone in the World.
    Happiness results from needs being met at each stage of life.
    That's why it's so illusive, and why it changes.

    "Happiness is a warm puppy."
    And he was right.
