TED Talk: Happiness is but a memory


Happiness, and the pursuit thereof, is serious stuff.

Human beings are more inclined to experience happiness when striving for a goal rather than having attained it. Hence the importance of work to our psyche, as Alain de Botton outlined so eloquently at the TEDGlobal conference held in the UK last year.

As illustrated in this talk from the Ted Conference held in California earlier this year, Nobel Prize-winning behavioural economist Daniel Kahneman has an intimate understanding of the complexity of experience and the tyranny that memory wields over the perpetual present.

It’s thought-provoking subject matter with profound implications for the way we perceive and pursue happiness, both in ourselves and with those around us.
