The Most Revolutionary Microsoft Technology You’ve Never Heard Of hat mich drauf aufmerksam gemacht.
Erklärt wird es gut im Channel 9 Video: CCR Programming - Jeffrey Richter and George Chrysanthakopoulos (ca. 1h)
(einfach nur vom Lesen des entsprechenden Artikels in der MSDN wäre bzw. ist mir die Coolness des Ansatzes entgangen)

Few concepts have insinuated themselves into the popular culture as thoroughly as the so called "5 Stages of Grief": Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance. We've heard it from professionals in all areas of the healthcare system (who should know better) as well as from lay persons of all ages (who shouldn't). There is even a lengthy comedy routine about it by Dustin Hoffman playing Lenny Bruce in the movie Lenny. The time has now come to ditch it as the concept has done more harm than good.
It was mentioned above that Grieving only begins where the 5 Stages of "Grief" leave off. Grief professionals often use the concept of "Grief Work" to help the bereaved through grief resolution. One common definition of Grief Work is summarized by the acronym TEAR:
T = To accept the reality of the loss
E = Experience the pain of the loss
A = Adjust to the new environment without the lost object
R = Reinvest in the new reality

ist eigentlich albern, fast jeden ihrer Blogeinträge hier zu referenzieren, dennoch: The four stages of happiness: anticipate, savor, express, and reflect
My research has shown me that a key to happiness is squeezing out as much happiness as possible from a happy event. Unhappy people don’t have fewer happy experiences as happy people, they just think about them less.
Stimmt alles, schön zusammengefasst:

After a huge amount of thought and false starts, I arrived at my formula: to be happier, think about feeling good, feeling bad, and feeling right, in an atmosphere of growth.
Therefore, applying my formula, I would say that “happiness” is a life in which you:
Work to have many opportunities to feel good – to have fun, to feel love, to learn about things that interest you, to feel sensual pleasure, to see friends and family, to connect with other people, to feel of service to others, to have energy, to feel control, etc.… (positive affect)
Work to eliminate sources of feeling bad – instances in which you feel anger, resentment, irritation, guilt, anxiety, boredom, grudges, worthlessness, disorder, exasperation, frustration, failure, etc. (negative affect)
Work to feel right about your life – take steps to live the kind of life you feel that you “ought” to be leading, in terms of job, family, location, service, etc. (life satisfaction)
Work to include an aspect of growth in your life – a sense of progress, advancement, increasing abundance, potential, opportunity, learning, mastery, responsibility
