Key Ideas

The Paradox of Choice

Having more options doesn’t mean that we will be happier, although, we often think that it will.

When we have too many choices, it is more difficult to take action, and if we decide, we are less satisfied with our choice.

Money

Money is related to happiness. If you don’t have enough money to feed your family, more money will more likely increase your happiness. 

But once you have met all of the basic needs, money is less influential.

Engagement and work

People are happiest and perform their best when they are actively engaged in what they are doing. 

To find happiness in your work, the key is to have projects that take you just outside of your comfort zone.

Relationships

The quality of your life is defined by the people who surround you: everything from chances of obesity and smoking to the likelihood of divorce and happiness passes through our networks.

Health

Although working overtime may seem rewarding, when that comes at the price of health and mental well-being, it dilutes your success.

Desire

We always work the hardest for the things we are most passionate about.

Choose your destiny and invest yourself in those fields that most interest you. 

Don't become an expert at the familiar

This type of comfort breeds something lazy in us and we only do what is expected of us, but do not go beyond. 

Crave what is new and unexplored, and fearlessly pursue those areas. 

Choose to excel

Effort counts twice as much as genius or talent.

Commit to being a person who wants to be more, do more, and consistently test the limits of your capacity. Embrace the responsibility and enjoy the freedom that comes with it.
