Update: A Thought Experiment About Happiness

Hey guys,

This post is one of my new ‘update’ types, so it’s a bit different. I’ll be posting my thought experiment questions as an actual post from now on so I have them documented.

The next Thought Experiment (number 7 by the way, can you believe it?) will be released on the 15th of August. This is slap bang in the middle of my honeymoon to California, but I’ll still be writing my response and scheduling it for release at 7:30 am on that day.

I’ll try my hardest to add everyone who takes part to the list during the holiday, but I’ll probably be a bit slower as our times will be all messed up.

If you want to be on the response list at release, let me know what your link will be and send it to me (on Twitter or via my contact page) before the 23rd of July and I’ll add you before I jet off.

So, without further ado, I present to you, Thought Experiment #7:


Most people’s lives are filled with so much commotion. We’re constantly moving and thinking like an electron jumping from atom to atom. There are very few moments when we experience true clarity, when we have a chance to really think clearly. These moments may come when reaching a mountain peak in the early hours of the morning or when you’re sitting up late one night and silently staring at the stars. Lots of life-changing decisions can be made in these moments; when you have the time to think about true happiness.

So, for this Thought Experiment, I’d like you to create one of these moments for yourself. I’d like you to think, and I mean really think about what you want and need to make yourself and your family happy.

What do you need to achieve real, true happiness? What are you aspiring to? Paint that perfect picture, you will need it as a guide whilst you make your way through life.


I’m really excited about taking part in this one myself, I’ll be finding a quiet room, putting on some classical, and grabbing a drink so I can really focus on thinking about my happiness goal, I might even light a candle!

So many people on the pathway to financial independence focus too much on the process and not what they’ll do when they get there. Use this Thought Experiment as an opportunity to really take the time to think about what you want.

If you haven’t got a blog and would like to take part, write it out on Word and send me a copy, I’ll feature it on the blog.

I can’t wait to hear your replies!
