I think the key is to try to live in the present moment as much as you can. When I read this post, 'Making Fast Transitions" comes to mind. No matter what you just did or where you are going next, be in that moment, orthogonally. I think getting really good a making fast transitions will help you honor all your commitments. Regarding happiness, I personally think 'happy' is overrated. Instead, I fall closer inline with Adam Smith's, “People actually desire, not only to be loved, but to be lovely."
