Some problems are so complex that you have to be highly intelligent and well informed just to be undecided about them. - Laurence J. Peter

Happiness is working for yourself

The University of Durham has published a study showing that running your own business will make you happier than working for others, according to the Daily Mail. That sounds right to me, but did they manage to separate correlation from causation? Maybe being happy leads you to run your own business, rather than running your own business leads you to be happy.
Working for yourself will make you much happier than those employed by others, according to research.

People who run their own businesses have such flexibility and independence that they enjoy far greater job satisfaction, experts claim.
But the self-employed earn less.
The self-employed work longer hours for lower wages than their wage-slave counterparts.

Scientists found entrepreneurs put up with longer hours because they were worried about how much money they would have in the future.
