It's an interesting question, a companion to the possibly precedent question of how happy we can be at work. Most of us have little to no literacy on happiness. We haven't learned the art and science of owning our happiness, which means being able to tune into the quiet hum of joy that is a constant beneath the din of irritation and uncertainty. So our capacity precludes our longing for joy in our work. How happy we should be becomes less relevant. How quickly and well we can cultivate happiness habits becomes the far more beautiful question.
