Happiness is created by "synergration"
There's a lot of talk about work-life balance, boosting your self-esteem and becoming more effective at work. We believe it's essential to integrate work, relationships and self-significance (which is much more than "self-esteem") into a unified whole to create the experience synergration. Work is an essential part of life, not separate from it, and being useful is critical for pursuing happiness along with relationship belonging and the unique creation of self-significance.
