A definition of success is "the freedom to spend time in ways that gives one joy." Joy is more than happiness, which is often transitory as it ebbs and flows with external events. Joy is more akin to contentment and satisfaction. Some believe it is momentary, suggesting we have "flashes of joy." The joy that comes with deep satisfaction and contentment, however, endures and its contours do not waver with the oscillations of the transient. Experience, time and observation reveal there are ways to architect joy.
