You’ve finished your Happiness Planner™ questionnaire and, no doubt, have been exploring your results. I hope you’ve found them insightful and helpful.
Over the coming days, we’ll be sending you more useful tips but right now, I want to tell you about one especially powerful way to get the most out of your Happiness Plan™. That is by taking your Happiness Plan to the next level with an Expert Analysis.
As you know by now, the Happiness Planner does a great job of identifying your top needs but what it can’t do is look at the big picture and the subtle details. That’s where the human touch of an Expert Analysis comes in.
We personally look at your entire suite of results, from your Personality Style to every one of your Happiness Essentials, to look for high-level patterns and subtle clues to help you move forward quickly and effectively in building your happiness.
Often, when we conduct an Expert Analysis, we find many of your top needs have a common solution, say finding a spouse, changing jobs, or doing something more meaningful with your life. We tell you about those big-picture trends but also go much further by spotting blockers.
Blockers are those needs, often quite secondary to your overall focus, that need to be worked on first because they are preventing you from moving forward effectively in other areas of your life. Often, we’ll spot blockers that have been holding you back for years that can be fixed with just a little extra attention.
Beyond the big-picture and the critical blockers, we also look at your Happiness Plan from different perspectives.
We look for other trends within your profile to identify skills you currently have that can be used to help you fulfill your unfulfilled needs and bring you greater happiness.
And we look at those needs which are of little interest to you to seek out low priority, but potentially helpful, Happiness Essentials you might benefit from addressing.
We look at your Personality Style and, based on your temperament, customize our recommendations to make them as effective for you as possible.
All this is done by hand and your report is written just for you. It’s not some boilerplate template, it’s a time consuming process conducted by one of our Happiness Experts, often by our founder, Kenneth Benjamin.
Here’s an example of what you’ll get…
This is an actual Expert Analysis prepared for one of our Happiness Planner™ Premium Edition clients. It has been edited for privacy purposes.
Really great talking to you today.
Overall, there is one very clear message arising from your Happiness Plan™: you need to be doing something challenging and you’re not. That’s no secret to you, of course, but it’s the other Happiness Essentials that floated to the top of your Happiness Plan that are instructive.
First, get some sleep. Seriously. If you’re not sleeping well then you’re not thinking well. It’s going to be hard to tune into your needs when you’re tired all the time. I’d fix that first and figure out how to keep it up despite your desires for your upcoming book launch success. Maybe get some relaxing evening reading time back before bed, then go to sleep when you start getting tired. Cutting back your high caffeine intake might help, too, especially after 3 or 4pm (the half-life of caffeine is about 6 hours).
Next, in our initial Happiness Coaching session, you were talking about helping others find and live their dreams. While that may sound like a worthy goal you should want, if you’ve answered the questions right then that isn’t what motivates you. In fact, according to the results for Opportunities to Give to Others, you’re already giving too much.
There’s a lot of talk about giving as the path to happiness but it’s not for everyone. Embrace who you are and give at the 58 out of 100 level you desire, not the 78 out of 100 you do now. Get a little more selfish and get happier. Remember, 58 is great and above average already so nothing to feel guilty about. Get your time back and use it for yourself.
Home and close friends go together to some degree. I know firsthand how difficult it is to have close friends when you’re on the move and away from home. The only solutions to this problem involves a certain amount of stability or finding other friends who are willing to engage over Skype, for example. It’s definitely not ideal and I can’t say I know how to make it work (wish I did). Maybe the new home you now have will do the trick.
You said you’re not looking for a physical challenge but your answer on Adventurousness combined with a need for less Safety and Security suggests at least a need to explore new domains, quite likely physical.
I’ve always been a big fan of world travel for the challenge and cultural experiences. Maybe that would help you. Let me know if that is something of interest and I’ll be happy to share some suggestions, if you’d like. Regardless, I think you should consider what adventurousness means to you and pursue it if, as I suspect, it’s different than the other challenge concepts you already have in mind.
Now, I’ve also had a look at your personality type. You’re a (INTJ – Rational Mastermind) – see http://keirsey.com/4temps/rational_overview.asp and http://keirsey.com/4temps/mastermind.asp but also look at the INTP, INFJ, INFP because you’re borderline on those types. You might consider taking Keirsey’s test to further refine and confirm your type but a look at each type description will help, I think.
There are a few important things here. First, you are highly on the iNutuive (conceptual) side of things. When dealing with the world, be aware that 3/4 of the population are Sensing types (hands on). Read up on Guardians and Artisans to see who they are. I think you’ll find it interesting, instructive, and potential constructive in whatever you do next.
Next, I’d give some thought to your needs as an Introvert. Introverts tend to lose energy to other people whereas Extroverts gain energy from other people. You’re a public figure and that may be draining you. The signs are there in your Happiness Plan. You need more rest and, especially, more “me time”, or so it seems from the results.
Overall, I think you need to take a fresh perspective on finding something meaningful. It may be that until you’ve given yourself the space and rest to look, you won’t find any answers. You may also find it valuable to go back into the Happiness Planner and click through on some of your top needs, then read the recommended content there.
My sense is that your last challenge was to build a better you. Now that you’ve done that well, you’re not quite sure what’s next. I’d ask you to think about what you wanted as a child or to find a complex puzzle that matters to you to solve. Masterminds are often in second-in-command positions. Maybe if you find the right cause, you can move the mountains that it needs without the drain of being the front-person.
Finally, just be honest with yourself. Don’t let the word should enter your thoughts. If it’s not want then it’s not right and you won’t have the motivation to see it through or else it won’t give you the happiness you desire.
All the best,
Founder and Chief Happiness Officer
