Pardon? What was that? Oh… you’re supposed to be working on a first draft/a substantive edit/Christmas cards/shopping/shortbread cookies/party preparations/vacuuming but you’re pissing away your time on the computer? What a coincidence! Me too!
The time waster of choice today is the Happy Planet Index, where you can check your relative happiness against that of other people in other parts of the world.
Thanks to my personal talent for procrastination, I scored as follows:
Your personal Happy Planet Index(HPI) is 76.
Impressive. This is above the world average of 46, but still below the target of 83, which represents a good life that doesn’t cost the Earth. There are still some ways that you can improve your score.
I have redacted the information about my ecological footprint, in order to continue feeling happy.
Go try it out! Leave me a comment with your results! Or… go back to work. Whichever sounds like more fun…
