Today's conversation features Neil Pasricha, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Awesome series, three time Webby Award winner, Harvard MBA grad, former Director of Leadership Development at Walmart, and husband, father, son, and brother.
He is the author of a new book, The Happiness Equation: Want Nothing + Do Anything = Have Everything, which started as a letter to his unborn child on how to live a happy life, after his wife told him she was pregnant on the flight home from their honeymoon!
In This episode, You’ll Learn:
How Neil divides his time into 3 buckets for optimal happiness (and how they are different from the 3 buckets Jonathan offers).
Why wanting can often lead to the exact opposite of happiness.
Why he advocates for a 'home contract' as a key to happiness, in addition to a business or employment contract.
How action leads to motivation, not the other way around.
Why he's loving the word practice these days.
