Seven rules for making more happiness

Quoting Jonathan Haidt’s book, The Happiness Hypothesis, designer Stefan Sagmeister says, “The conscious mind is this tiny rider on this giant elephant, the unconscious. And the rider thinks that he can tell the elephant what to do, but the elephant really has his own ideas.”

Sagmeister shares his seven rules for seeking joy and happiness on a daily basis in this TED Talk, diving into the importance of our subconscious minds in our decision-making and how being mindful of this can help us understand each decision we make.

You owe it to yourself — and to those you need to be Awesome for — to spend the 10 minutes to watch this.
