Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present. — Jim Rohn So the server asked me what I wanted and I said that I'd take a full order of happiness.  It's what is on today's menu! On this episode, I had the great pleasure to talk with Sean Webb about his books on mind hacking happiness.  I won't bore you with my version of what we talked about because it PALES in comparison to the actual interview.  But....you can take this to the lavatory, it is pretty awesome.  He has done the research and we get to benefit from it!...

“A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.”

Charles Darwin

I've never quite understood the 40 hour workweek.  Have you?  I mean, if you can get your work done in half of the time...why do you need to sit there until the clock runs out?  Production is production, isn't it?

This is just ONE of the issues we discuss with my AWESOME guest, Natalie Nagele, on this week's Leadership Happy Hour.  Natalie is what all leaders should be; a life-long learner.  She is doing things really good but she still wants to do it better so she can "enable life" for her team.  I know you're going to dig Natalie as much as I do!

CHEERS!
