Should you make your clients happy?
Well, is your clients’ happiness your responsibility?
Is the happiness of anyone else, the closest relationship you got, your responsibility?
Does anyone pressure you to take someone else’s happiness besides your own as responsibility? Do people have this idea that you should? Or even better, that you already do?
If you don’t solve your clients’ problems, but you do it in a way that makes them happy, did you do your job? Where do you draw the line?
I think the high resolution question is: does your business deliver happiness? If no, is that a bonus? If yes, is it the only thing it delivers?
If it’s a bonus, do you charge more for being put in situations where you have to make compromises so you keep them happy? Or maybe it’s just your pleasure and you like making others happy, even though you open the borders of your boundaries way more than you would do for your friends, let’s say?
If your business delivers exclusively happiness, then how much do you charge for the stuff that will not make them happy short-term but provide a better, long-term solution? Do you even bother to sell that? Or does your business sell short-term happiness at the expense of long-term suffering?
How do you define happiness? Is your definition of happiness aligned with that of your clients’? Isn’t it easier to make happy those that you can?
