The Happiness Project with Gretchen Rubin
What makes people happy at work? Do you sometimes envy one or more of your colleagues because they seem happier than you? Do you wish that you could be happier in your career and life? Is happiness in your career caused by luck, good fortune or something that just is or isn’t there? Do you ever wonder whether you could have an impact on the level of happiness you have towards your career? Is it practical to even consider whether “happiness” is important in your career? Join Alan Kearns as he interviews Gretchen Rubin, New York Times best-selling author as they examine happiness and discuss Gretchen’s new book, The Happiness Project: Or, Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun .
Gretchen Rubin had an epiphany one rainy afternoon in the unlikeliest of places: a city bus. “The days are long, but the years are short,” she realized. “Time is passing, and I’m not focusing enough on the things that really matter.” In that moment, she decided to dedicate a year to her happiness project.
Gretchen Rubin is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, The Happiness Project—an account of the year she spent test-driving the wisdom of the ages, the current scientific studies, and the lessons from popular culture about how to be happier. On her blog, The Happiness Project, she reports on her daily adventures in the pursuit of happiness.
Rubin started her career in law, and she was clerking for Justice Sandra Day O’Connor when she realized that she really wanted to be a writer. Her bestselling Forty Ways to Look at Winston Churchill and Forty Ways to Look at JFK are succinct, provocative biographies. Power Money Fame Sex: A User’s Guide is biting social criticism in the form of a user’s manual. She also has three terrible novels safely locked in a desk drawer.
Raised in Kansas City, she lives in New York City with her husband and two young daughters.
