Recently, GNH (Gross National Happiness) has been emphasized as a policy goal of the national and local governments. In positive psychology, people feel the happiness in the process towards the goal achievement. Additionally, the goal is classified as approach and avoidance goal. And to achieve the goal, determination of approach goal is effective. In this study, we developed a goals achievement sharing system based on approach goals in positive psychology to investigate the change in the goal achievement rate and happiness scale in order to share the type of goal.
