“The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in the details of daily live.” -William Morris
I am in total agreement with this statement. I find that when I am particular, detailed, deliberate, and intentional, in almost all of the details of life, I enjoy life more. When I know what I plan to accomplish that day and when I am methodical about making sure that I do it, there is a peace and satisfaction at the end of the day that leads to a feeling of contentment: a necessary element of my personal definition of happiness.
My personality lends itself to this type of “obsessive” behavior, however. I love details, logistics, and planning. But for others, I think, taking an interest in the minutia could become tedious. Thus, the quote could inspire them to take a genuine interest in those activities that they enjoy and not feel guilty about it.
