"Fifteen years after getting his MBA, Raj Raghunathan spent some time with his old classmates. He noticed that though they'd all done well, there didn't appear to be much correlation between their academic success and career success. What Raghunathan found even more curious was the even smaller correlation between career success and what he calls life success. The greater the career success, the more unhappy, out of shape, harried, and distracted his friends were."--Book jacket.… (more)

The book can be boring and quite long. There's also a lot of survey questions which I skip as the questions seem to be for primary school students.

The book focus on the negative and tell us to avoid them. Not bad but kind of boring and long winded.

Define what is happiness and find happiness in everyday situations.

Don't devalue happiness. Make happiness your priority.

Don't compare ranks. Pursue your flow.

Don't be desperate for love or full control.

Don't be too distrust in. Don't over think.

Mastery, belonging, autonomy ( )
