Daniel Kahneman: The riddle of experience vs. memory

Most moments are never remembered because our "remembering self" forgets most of them and focuses on the beginning, middle and especially the end. While we often focus on making our "experiencing self" happy, it is our remembering that determines whether an experience made us happy beyond the moment in which we experienced it.
