Dan Gilbert spoke at Training 2007. He is an incredibly affable, funny and insightful person. His book, Stumbling on Happiness is a best seller.
One of the things that I really enjoy about speaking at conferences is the speaker room. Over the years I have been fortunate to meet and chat with a number of incredible people. Dan is no exception. Here is a 21 minute version of Dan discussing his research on Happiness.
To tie this back to my FREEDOM Mnemonic for Synthetic Worlds, I Love the following quote from Dan, “Freedom to choose, the ability to make up and change your mind is the friend of natural happiness and the enemy of synthetic happiness.” (Timestamp 14:22).
