Ideas That Help Us Thrive

HAPPINESS IS LIKE HEROIN

Believe it or not, the goal of life is not just emotional happiness. If we don’t get this down we’ll never find lasting happiness, or well-being.

NEEDS ARE A HARSH MISTRESS

Let’s overachieve and talk about how we try to meet our needs with strategies, or actions, that we consciously and unconsciously, use to satisfy needs.

IS THE APOCALYPSE REALLY COMING?

Anyone else see the deluge of headlines proclaiming the demise of the human race? I know it’s hard to look away from the dystopian future scenarios but odds are we figure it out. We usually do.

HABITS: FRIEND OR FOE?

Habits are a great tool that can lead to increased well-being if we choose them wisely. If our habits have chosen us, however, they can lead to sorrow.

SKINNY JEANS TOO SKINNY?

When I have paralysis from over-analysis there is only one thing to do. Stop philosophizing and start doing. I pick one need and start making progress.

NO MYTH REQUIRED

Are myths necessary to keep a society together? Of course not. Which is why Yuval Harari’s book “Sapiens,” had me at hello, but quickly left me broken-hearted.

LOST IN TRANSLATION

By remembering that emotion is just a translation of our main goals of surviving and thriving we can make sure we don’t get lost in that translation.
