Proposal for Happiness of Your Employees – Happiness Diary: My Experiments with Happiness

For some years now, I have been working on a number of Happiness related projects such as Happiness Strategy book, India Happiness Report, India Cities Happiness Report besides teaching and training happiness. These happiness projects also involved leading global thoughts leaders on happiness. These projects are praised and endorsed by global thought leaders.

I have created a unique Happiness Diary: My Experiments with Happiness is a journal exploring how to bring happiness to one’s life on a daily basis by practicing happiness daily. The diary is unique in many ways, and three main unique points are shared here. First, though it is based on and draws from various disciplines and is comprehensive in coverage, it is deliberately kept brief and simple, saving readers a lot of time. Second, rather than just talking a lot of theoretical knowledge, it focuses on experiments and experiencing happiness. Third, it is action-oriented and suggests small and applicable changes on a daily basis. This Happiness Dairy is endorsed and praised by global thought leaders.

For the happiness of your employees, use it in your organization. It is in digital format. You can co-brand it and add messages from your leadership for your employees. You can use it for an annual royalty. For more contact

 “I have great pleasure in recommending Dr. Rajesh Pillania’s Happiness Diary to all readers.  He has followed Gandhiji’s model of experimenting with oneself.  It is a “workbook”.  Very necessary.  In Management, starting from Mission, Vision and Strategy, “Systems and Processes” are most essential.  We need SoPs, Standard Operating Procedures.  This book is such a micro system for your own happiness.  It gives seven guiding principles.  One is to “Choose” happiness.  Abraham Lincoln said, “Most folks are as happy as they make up their mind to be”.  Another is, knowing about happiness is not enough.  That is our gyana shakti. Doing is more important.  Our ichha shakti is generally weaker.  He draws on Economics.  “Nudge” yourself towards Happiness.  The diary starts with a zero base self-assessment of yourself, on 11 dimensions, on a 7-point scale.  He suggests a daily schedule.  Such a plan, and adherence to it can prevent waste of time and days.  It need not be a lonely struggle.  The author suggests your small happiness group.  Also, a buddy, for mutual support, and reinforcement.  He ends with an annual diary.  January to November cover the above 11 dimensions. December is for review and reflections.  Dr. Pillania has given you a System for Happiness.  Do you have the “System Discipline” to follow it?  Develop it.  Be happy.  Spread happiness.”
