In this episode we tackle the topic of happiness from all angles: what it is and why it’s important, Michael’s personal journey in search for happiness, models for achieving and measuring happiness, as well as how technology may impact the arc of our future happiness. We also discuss how our environment influences self-perceived happiness.
There are some real gems in this episode, especially in the second half.
