Book Description

The Happiness Spreadsheet is a workbook that leads the reader step-by-step to the creation of a personalized Happiness Spreadsheet.

What is a Happiness Spreadsheet? The Happiness Spreadsheet is really three things—an idea, a document and a way of life. Here’s the idea: If you can think differently and more consciously about the relationship between your spending, your values and your happiness, your life can change dramatically. As a document, The Happiness Spreadsheet provides the structure for you to turn this idea into reality. The payoff? You can use your Happiness Spreadsheet to both monitor and recalibrate the role that money plays in your everyday life.

By completing the exercises in the book you will: Identify your key values, beliefs and ideals; focus on spending in relation to those beliefs and ideals; and create a spending plan that aligns with your most cherished values while at the same time living within your means.

Cathy Curtis, the author, is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and has helped clients over the past 10 years to optimize their spending to lead more fulfilling lives. This ebook was inspired by her experiences with her clients.

5.0 out of 5 stars Money, means, and happiness March 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Socrates warned us that the unexamined life is not worth living. This might have been a big consideration back in Athens in his days, but in the "here and now" of our turbulent economic times for many of us the "unaccounted" life might not only make us poor, but also leave us unhappy. Money can't buy happiness, but it can be a tool for better self-knowledge, which is likely to bring us happiness, to put the Socratic spin on it.

In The Happiness Spreadsheet, financial planner Cathy Curtis reassures us that we can have it all, as long as we know clearly what having it all means to us. It's not about having everything, but having the right things that match our values. The series of spreadsheets in the book gradually bring us to a mindful realization that the value of money is not always in the numbers but in the level of support and growth it provides for a life lived based on what we value.

I have had the fortune to participate in a discussion of priorities and happiness based on The Happiness Spreadsheet, and I can say that I continue to fill in the fields defined by my values in my mind as I go about making my financial decisions, big and small.

Money can't buy happiness but being a conscious spender can certainly help. The Happiness Spreadsheet, written by the super savvy financial planner, Cathy Curtis, is a fun, easy to read book that teaches you how to be more mindful with your money. It is an inspiring read that sheds light on your spending and guides you to really discover where your dollars are going. After reading The Happiness Spreadsheet, I found I was doing less impulse buying and more conscientious spending which translates to more joy and happiness in my life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Personal Budgeting made fun! January 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One of my New Year's resolutions was to take control of the personal budgeting. Although I am the Executive Director of an organization and rely heavily on sound budgeting for our organization's success, I have resisted embracing serious personal budgeting for some time.

The Happiness Spreadsheet, and Cathy Curtis' monograph, made my New Year's resolution quite achievable. And surprisingly enjoyable! Not only is her three-step approach logical, you find yourself enthusiastic about stepping through the process as it asks you to reflect on what is important in your life and creates a path to getting more of that.

A bonus to this great book is the modest yet powerful list of books, blogs and websites included at the end. Cathy has culled through a myriad of information to give us The Best of The Best to truly inspire us to greatness.

Cathy's book offers practical, easy-to-complete exercises to boost your happiness while staying within your budget.

I read it when I was struggling with my goals for the new year. I wasn't sure what would make me happy. The exercises helped me realize some new things about what makes me happy. This kind of outside-the-box thinking is very useful.
