Having strong social ties is probably the most meaningful contributor to happiness. Make time for the people who are important to you.
Two men were out hunting when they accidentally dropped their rifles over a cliff. Just then, they spotted a bear coming toward them. They scurried up a tree, but the bear started to follow them up. Perched on a branch, the first guy took off his hiking boots and put on running shoes. “What are you doing?” demanded his friend.
“When the bear gets close, we’ll jump down and make a run for it.”
“Are you nuts? We can’t outrun a bear!”
“I don’t have to. I only have to outrun you!”
