    If there were no other currency than happiness, would you work at the same job you do now? How much do you get paid in happiness per hour as opposed to dollars per hour, is it a close ratio or is there a large gap?

    Good question. I would. Through trying lots of different jobs and learning to manage my money well also, I have managed to carve out a career I really love (mentoring, coaching & writing). I really appreciate that I now feel this way.

    This is a difficult question. I would conclude (quite qualitatively-though) that yes, I would indeed continue with what I am doing now. I am a simple college professor. Although I instruct students in the area of psychology and educational psychology in units of 25; what makes my career ideal (for me) is the balance between time-off, instruction, research and diagnosis of disorders in students. Although on second thought I would probably fair-trade what I just mentioned for a chance to hoist Lord's Stanley's Cup...
