I try to no longer think in terms of happiness. I believe that the pursuit of happiness in the modern sense tends to diminish us as individuals. When we chase only one of the myriad feelings that are part of being human, we try to avoid the others. … Instead, I view life in terms of purpose, of meaning. I think this involves finding our greatest strengths and passions, then developing these and sharing them with the world.

The Humanity Project is rooted in science and empirical ideas, none of which conflict with any major religion. We maintain that human beings can and must find common ground based on mutual benefit, regardless of religious background. That’s what our philosophy of shared value is all about: mutual benefit as we navigate daily life. So on Christmas Eve, I hope we all can simply find a sense of peace and hope for humanity … and look forward to working together to help make it happen in 2011.

With every passing year of my life, I feel more sure that each individual possesses a genuine capacity for greatness of some kind. I don’t intend that as some idealistic, rose-colored glasses type of comment. I think it’s literally true. Not necessarily the greatness that brings huge fame and big money, but rather the greatness that comes from knowing who we are as individuals and developing our best qualities for the benefit of humanity.

At the Humanity Project, we never forget our friends. This includes the people who have helped us along the way as well as the companies and organizations that support our work. One of our oldest and most loyal friends is Yellow Strawberry Global Hair Salon and its owner, Jesse Briggs. Now Jesse is retiring and we want to say thank you!
