Take notes.

I was absolutely amazed at how simple yet enlightening every single chapter was for me. I agree with his simple yet helpful suggestions on how to have a happier life. I am going to listen again, this time taking notes and implementing them as I can. Thank you for this wonderfully encouraging, timed perfectly book.

Pragmatic Yet Lacking


Dr. Tim Sharp is a positive psychologist who gives you a pragmatic look on happiness. Overall, and in summary, you cannot always be happy and to expect such is unrealistic. Why then did that take 10 minutes to explain?

Sharp then proceeds to talk about creating a vision board to organize what you want out of your life—at the end are a bunch of people who talk about how their vision boards helped change their lives. It did not feel authentic. I also did not know who any of the 5+ people were.

Overall, this podcast is 3/5. It is not terrible. It is not great. It is average.

Just a goal book

Goals aren't what I'm looking for. Had enough of that in sales. This isn't about happiness, it's about goal setting

Very Practical and Practicable

Dr. Sharp lays out 10 key skill sets that can be used by anyone to increase their satisfaction with their lives. I like his positive attitude and examples. I don't recommend trying to do everything at once. Start with step one, let it settle in, and then move on to another step. Maybe don't feel obliged to do everything in order. We should all get this training in high school!

Great Advice!

Really enjoyed this. Very simple habits that can change my outlook on life. Most of these things I already know. The challenge for me is applying them daily.

Book Review as a team

We decided to read this book as a team at work. One episode a day with a Friday review on Friday. The biggest takeaway has been that life is all about doing the basics better. This book walks through very simply but impactful habits that create a happy and balanced life. Well done.
