Happiness has been used as guide to the good life for thousands of years. It can though just as easily lead us awry as direct us towards a life well lived. If we use the over-arching category of happiness as our aim for life we are likely to end up in problems. We must learn to see happiness as something more nuanced and differentiated. By doing so the target we set up can bring us much more life satisfaction. This is not to deny the importance of happiness, just we need to see our aim more clearly.
