I didn’t feel like writing or editing anything fancy this week, but I wanted to give you something to consume heading into the weekend. This is one of my favorite videos that changed the way I think about career, happiness and general life philosophy.
When we boil down life to the basics, it is really quite simple. Do things that are fun. Avoid things that suck. Don’t hurt other people. Do what you want to.
Our brains are really good at taking complexity and oversimplifying. The same brain is also great at taking very simple things and making them overly complex. Sometimes it is best just to see the world as it is.
This guy has things figured out. He found the simplicity of happiness. He took the complex and made it simple.
There is so much awesomeness in these 16 minutes. Find a nice quiet place and watch. I dare you not to become happier after viewing this video.
If you still want something to read, check out this post of mine from the archives. Whatever you do stay away from news. Looking through my Twitter and Facebook feeds more people need to unplug. Enjoy the weekend philosophers 🙂
