“iHappiness” is Also a State of Mind with the iPad and iPhone

  • If you’ve read the Welcome message on this website, then you know that I’m all about the pursuit of  “iHappiness” — enjoying an easier, richer lifestyle using your iPad or iPhone. But like regular happiness,  iHappiness is a state of mind. How much of it you achieve largely depends on two things — iDevice familiarity and attitude.

    “Happiness is Learning to Whistle”

    IHappiness correlates directly with the understanding and mastery of your iDevice.  The more you learn how to use your iPad or iPhone, the happier you’ll be.

    For instance, I know so many people who are merely content — or at best, fleetingly happy — with the brand new  iPad that they got but use in a very limited way. For them, the iPad is just another expensive toy or redundant gadget, albeit prestigious. On the other hand, many other folks  confess sustained ecstasy over a beat up, old iPhone that they’ve had forever but learned to use extensively at home, on the road and at work.

    So it’s not so much what model of iPad or iPhone you own that ultimately determines your level of iHappiness. As Mahatma Gandhi once put it, “There is more to life than increasing its speed.” What really matters is  how well you use your iDevice to manage or enhance important  areas of your life.

    “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”

    IHappiness also depends upon your attitude. To enjoy your iPad or iPhone quickly, you’ve got  to approach it curiously and adventurously rather than fearfully or timidly. You must also be willing to shed expectations of the “same old, same old” technology because by all accounts, your iDevice is a paradign-shift, a game changer. It has redefined computing — especially mobile computing — though thankfully in a very user-friendly and intuitive way. That makes for a very short, abbreviated learning curve, even if you’ve never used a computer in your life.

    I cannot overstate the importance of attitude in getting the most out of your iPad or iPhone and achieving the highest level of iHappiness possible. So I present two videos below to help me make the case further.  Of course, I run the risk of seriously downplaying the “iGrumpify” effect of actually paying for an iPad — which hits grownups so much more than children — but that’s a subject for a future post.

    In the meantime, here’s to your continued iHappiness. I would love to hear your thoughts on this. Cheers!
