The Happiness Equation
Want Nothing + Do Anything = Have Everything
by Neil Pasricha
-Inspirational
Amazon | Goodreads

What’s the formula for a happy life?

Neil Pasricha is a Harvard MBA, a Walmart executive, a New York Times–bestselling author, and a husband and dad. After selling more than a million copies of his Book of Awesome series, he now shifts his focus from observation to application.

In The Happiness Equation, Pasricha illustrates how to want nothing, do anything, and have everything. If that sounds like a contradiction, you simply haven’t unlocked the 9 Secrets to Happiness.

Each secret takes a common ideal, flips it on its head, and casts it in a completely new light. Pasricha then goes a step further by providing step-by-step guidelines and hand-drawn scribbles that illustrate exactly how to apply each secret to live a happier life today.

Controversial? Maybe. Counterintuitive? Definitely.

The Happiness Equation will teach you such principles as:
· Why success doesn’t lead to happiness
· How to make more money than a Harvard MBA
· Why multitasking is a myth
· How eliminating options leads to more choice

The Happiness Equation is a book that will change how you think about everything—your time, your career, your relationships, your family, and, ultimately, of course, your happiness.


=====> Always looking for tips on this topic :-)

  1. The last Bond film I watched was Casino Royale. I like Daniel Craig as Bond but just haven't got round to watching the rest of the films yet. This week, I've got fantasy, urban fantasy, dystopia, horror and sci-fi on my STS haul which is quite exciting! Enjoy your new book!

  2. That is a cute planner. I'm lucky I fill in the dates on my wall calendar. :)

    Oh cool! I love the older James Bond movies.

  3. I like the planner kit! Your new horror book sounds interesting, but horror is definitely not for me. I hope you enjoy it!

    Have a fabulous week. :)

    Check out my STS post!
