Challenge: About 50% of your total happiness is outside of your control, you can and should blame (or thank) your parents for that. However, we have some ability to control that other 50% and science has done quite a bit of work on exactly how we should go about doing that. Since being generally OK with yourself is a big part of accomplishing almost all other great projects, the challenge we present you today is to take a look at some of the research into happiness and come up with a plan to integrate some of its tenants into your life.
