Given all of the possibilities we have living in a modern society, people still struggle with feeling lost, unhappy, and unfulfilled. It’s even been reported that American unhappiness hit a record low early this year. If you do a climate check with the people in your life and your social media pages, it’s not hard to see that sadly behind some of the smiles, there’s a feeling of unhappiness in the air. Arthur C. Brooks is the William Henry Bloomberg Professor of the Practice of Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School and Professor of Management Practice at the Harvard Business School. He’s discussing why he felt called to explore and research the human experience and model of what actually brings us happiness. If money, fame, power, and pleasure doesn’t bring permanent happiness, then what does? How can you ensure a trajectory of life that leads to happiness and fulfillment?
