Some Things Can’t Be Measured

The new year is always a good time to see how you’re measuring up to your dreams and ambitions. But getting time off from work for a Tibetan retreat isn’t easy to come by, and the palm reader on your corner will just tell you what you want to hear.

If only you had a tool that would help. Something simple, compact, and portable. Something anyone with one good eye and one good hand could use. Something that comes in Macktez Yellow …


Of course there’s still another problem: How do you measure happiness anyway?

(We’re here to help with that too.)

First, measure the qualities that comprise your happiness. Write the number that corresponds to your answer in each box:

Happiness Test

Check out below what that score might mean. And hang on to that tape measure — you can use it again next year.

Answers (in white; select to see)

8-10 = Maybe you need that Tibetan retreat after all.
11-14 = Work on your humor and your flexibility — the rest will have to come later.
15-17 = If average suits you, then don’t change a thing.
18-21 = You’re ready for that last step… maybe ask for a raise?
22-24 = There’s nothing left for you to do but to come work at Macktez… there’s even a window seat available.
