Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“What is happiness?”

“If you look up happiness quotes on Google, you’ll find a huge variety of perspectives on what happiness is, many incompatible with one another.

Every single one of those perspectives is a conceptual model.

In trying to ‘make sense‘ of the word, people do just that – they create meaning. Something that is meaningful to them.

I call this process, model-making.
I call taking control of this process, intentional model-making.

The essence of intentional model-making was beautifully expressed by Bruce Lee:

Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is uniquely yours. 

The ultimate goal is to create your own model of happiness.”
