This is an amazing video! It will take you about 20 minutes but it will give you insights into the difference between natural and synthesized happiness. And what’s most amazing to me is the conclusion Dan Gilbert, the presenter, draws (based on scientific data) about whether we’re happier when we have unlimited choices or when our choices are more narrow. (There are also some profound political implications in what he says at the end.)

Thank you to JD for sending me the link. He is from one of the most positive companies at which I have had the pleasure to present, a-dec and I’m honored I got to present there.
