Measuring What Matters in Indianapolis: Your Gross National Happiness (GNH)

by Lisa Treadwell

Are you measuring what's really important to you? Are you measuring the intangibles that contribute to your happiness and business success?

There's actually a movement underway among governmental authorities in many countries of the world to measure their Gross National Happiness (GNH). And it's known as that: The GNH Movement.

While Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is the measurement of productivity that we're all used to hearing about - whether we're an Indianapolis real estate agent or a Wall Street financier - GDP fails to recognize or provide a metric to illuminate a key component of business, financial and life success for us all; that simple little word known as happiness.

I understand that this sounds rather high-minded, Buddhist-centric, and not necessarily practical.

But what if you did measure your happiness and use it as a barometer of success in any walk of life? It's an intriguing theory and while I could attempt to explain it more here with my own writing, I'll let the video below - a 2010 presentation at a TED conference - hopefully inspire your further investigation.
