I´ve just read “Stumbling on Happiness” by Daniel Gilbert. Almost 10 years old and not everything is new for an ambitious reader but Gilbert shares some great insights and results of his studies of happiness.
Up front I gotta say that this book is easy to read and it´s absolutely worth it. Some of his theses are eyeopening or at least thought provoking.
The beginning of the book is about “how much of what you do is for you NOW and how much is to please you in the FUTURE“. All of us are very future-focused and do actions often to please our future-us. Do you know that the human beings are the only animals that think about the future?
