When I was writing my book The Happiness Project, I asked her, "What do you think is the secret of a happy life?" I was surprised by her answer, but as I thought about it, I've understood more and more what a good answer it is.

Do you agree that "Work worth doing" is a key to a happy life? What do you think that means, exactly? I suspect that Justice O'Connor takes a very broad view of what counts as "work" that's worth doing.
