Some people have told us that their life is rich and happy enough just with their family life and work. Others have told us they find outside interests and activities such as these things add to the richness of their lives. Some of those may be things you do because you feel you should or need to do, not because they necessarily make your life any richer or fuller. Would you read down that list and call off any that you do and which you feel make your life richer and fuller? (Source: Roper Report 79-8, Aug, 1979)
