What keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life? If you think it’s fame and money, you’re not alone – but, according to psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, you’re mistaken. As the director of a 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction. In this talk, he shares three important lessons learned from the study as well as some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on how to build a fulfilling, long life.
The overwhelming conclusion of the study was simply this: “The good life is built with good relationships”!
In all the work we at Learning to Lead (https://ltl.co.za) do we have been guided by the wisdom of Margaret Wheatley, who convinced us that “relationships are all there is”!
When positive energy flows freely in a relationship, we are happy. If it is negative, we aren’t. It’s as simple as that.
