If you think it’s fame and money, you’re not alone –
80% of millenials have a goal of “get rich”
50% of those 80% also want to “become famous”.
However, 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 three lessons are:
1. Social connections are good for us. Social isolation kills.
2. It’s not the number of friends, but the quality of your close relationships that count.
3. People who faired the best leaned in to relationships, not fame and money.
