Brian Johnson brilliantly summarizes 5 big ideas from the book Choose the Life You Want: 101 Ways to Create Your Own Road to Happiness by Tal Ben-Shahar PhD.  Here they are:

  1. Choose to Choose – the tiny choices you make in every moment add up to the biggest difference in your life
  2. 5-Minute Takeoff – if you tend to procrastinate, you don’t need to wait to be inspired – just start and give yourself 5 minutes to get going
  3. Instant Gratification – best to not always delay gratification & experience gratification in the moment. Determine what gives you joy NOW (happiness boosters) and do it
  4. Failure Hall of Fame – learn how to fail well; failures are stepping stones
  5. Golden Rule+ – Do not do unto to those who are closest to you that which you would not do to those you barely know
