Destroying happiness

A test of the new Press This WordPress feature.

A journalist asked me, Most people have a better standard of living today than Louis XIV did in his day. So why are so many people unhappy?

What you have doesn’t make you unhappy. What you want does.

And want is created by us, the marketers.

Marketers trying to grow market share will always work to make their non-customers unhappy.

It’s interesting to note that marketers trying to maintain market share have a lot of work to do in reminding us that we’re happy.

  1. Hey Fred, thanks for the comments.

    Well actualy I was just wondering if that could just replace twitter for me.

    I am not twitting much anyway and I like to keep all my conversations in one place.

    Currently reading The Purple Cow from Seth, after the recommendation of Arrington at StartUp08. Brilliant stuff !
