    While many things contribute to happiness, one key attitude shift in how we talk and think about our activities will help us be much happier.

    “Happiness isn’t doing what you like, it’s liking what you do.” -Quote on my dad's desk

    Vance Caesar was one of my professor's in graduate school.

    He wrote The High Achiever’s Guide To Happiness*
    Vance said, “Create more 'gets to's' than 'got to's"

    Do you have more “get to’s” than “got to's?”

    Do you have to give someone feedback today, or do you get to?
    Do you have to give a presentation today, or do you get to?
    Do you have to resolve a conflict today, or do you get to?
    Do you have to go to work today, or do you get to?

    The secret to happiness is having more “gets to's” than “got to's”

    What will you do this week to turn a “got to” into a “get to?”
