Bob Ross: Valley View - The Joy of Painting (Season: 21 Episode: 01) A wish for you in 2014. I once heard one person say about another: She had a capacity for deep joy.

a wish for you in 2014

That struck me. In fact, I thought it was goddamn beautiful. Could somebody say that about me, I wondered, and a thought rose in response: Maybe not so much. Even back then, I sensed a difference between happiness and joy. Happiness is related to your circumstances. Joy goes deeper. The Holstee Manifesto: Lifecycle Video. Holstee manifesto. The Future of Self-Improvement, Part I: Grit Is More Important Than Talent. In the late ’60s, Stanford psychologist Walter Mischel performed a now-iconic experiment called the Marshmallow Test, which analyzed the ability of four year olds to exhibit “delayed gratification.”

The Future of Self-Improvement, Part I: Grit Is More Important Than Talent

Here’s what happened: Each child was brought into the room and sat down at a table with a delicious treat on it (maybe a marshmallow, maybe a donut). The scientists told the children that they could have a treat now, or, if they waited 15 minutes, they could have two treats. All of the children wanted to wait. (Who doesn’t want more treats?) But many couldn’t. When the researchers subsequently checked in on these same children in high school, it turned out that those with more self-control — that is, those who held out for 15 minutes — were better behaved, less prone to addiction, and scored higher on the SAT.

It’s not difficult to see how self-control would be predictive of success in certain spheres. In essence, Twitter is the new marshmallow. And yet: Self-control isn’t the whole story. NIKO NIKO THROW & GROW CONFETTI. Our products are made of plantable paper.

Why Generation Y Yuppies Are Unhappy. Say hi to Lucy.

Why Generation Y Yuppies Are Unhappy

Lucy is part of Generation Y, the generation born between the late 1970s and the mid 1990s. She's also part of a yuppie culture that makes up a large portion of Gen Y. I have a term for yuppies in the Gen Y age group -- I call them Gen Y Protagonists & Special Yuppies, or GYPSYs. A GYPSY is a unique brand of yuppie, one who thinks they are the main character of a very special story. So Lucy's enjoying her GYPSY life, and she's very pleased to be Lucy. Lucy's kind of unhappy. To get to the bottom of why, we need to define what makes someone happy or unhappy in the first place. It's pretty straightforward -- when the reality of someone's life is better than they had expected, they're happy. Hooray, it's test day! Five Boroughs: Building Age NYC.
