Episode 62 – The 7 Habits of Highly Effective 7-Habit-List Writers

What makes people happy? It’s a question I asked 12 people on last week’s show, and this week Happy Road takes it further and explores some of the common threads and themes that happy people share based on a Covey-esque “7 Habits” type of article. Then, some advice to help you get off the sofa and get some exercise!

Show Notes:

This week, I have all kinds of cool stuff to share that didn’t quite make it onto the show, due to time constraints and trying to keep focused.

First, Disney.com shares their take on Stephen R. Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People with… The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Disney Characters. Go figure!

To continue the “7 Habits” trend, here is the original 99U article that I referred to on the show.

A 2003 study by Van Boven and Gilovich reveals that experiential spending makes us happier than material spending. A second study by Carter and Gilovich explores the topic further.

Finally, a brilliant stand-up bit by George Carlin explains our relationship we have with stuff.
