I have emphasized that when people set career goals for themselves, they think that goal is going to be the ticket to ultimate happiness. They find that is not always the case, because once they reach that goal, they want more. They end up in a cycle of goal-setting, realizing that they did not make them as happy as they thought, and setting higher goals. There is nothing wrong with setting goals and being happy or unhappy when you achieve them, but that achievement should not dictate your overall happiness. Achor also explained the difference between happiness and pleasure. I have used the example of when he goes running. Is running pleasurable? No. But is he happy that he can move his body and work on his health? And it is.
