Talk: Happiness Project

A few years ago, I had an epiphany on the cross-town bus. I asked myself, What do I want from life, anyway? and I thought, I want to be happy, but I never spent any time thinking about happiness. I should do a happiness project! I realized. And so I have. My happiness project has convinced me that it's possible to be happier by taking small, concrete steps in your daily life. In my book and on this daily blog, I write about what I've learned as I've test-driven the wisdom of the ages, the current scientific studies, and the lessons from popular culture. Plutarch, Samuel Johnson, Benjamin Franklin, St. Thérèse, the Dalai Lama, Oprah, Martin Seligman, I cover it all.
