For the person who has been living in a shoebox for the last 20 years because of financial hardship...moving to a new location and a better apartment is an awesome feat.
Awesome is in the eye of the beholder.
What really clicked for me was the part where he talks about when you aren't working on it it bugs you, you cant stop thinking about it becomes an obsession.
being happier is too vague, they will need to define what being happier i what level of happiness do they want, setting guidelines like laughing hard at least 3 times a day will help clarify what they level is.
A awesome goal for someone who is clinically depressed would be to get out of depression by defining the non-depressed person they want to become, think about being that all that behaving like that changing their thoughts moods attitudes. But i doubt they would be able to set a goal like that.
