Read Dan Gilbert's “Stumbling on Happiness” with Beate about a year ago. We both found it found very insightful and enjoyed it a lot. Tonight I saw Gilbert's TED talk and remembered once again how nice his book is 🙂
A funny quote from the TED talk:
Okay. There’s something important to be learned from these people, and it is the secret of happiness. Here it is, finally to be revealed.
- accrue wealth, power, and prestige, then lose it.
- spend as much of your life in prison as you possibly can.
- make somebody else really, really rich.
- never ever join the Beatles.
