Linda and I had a look this morning at the Ted Talks site and enjoyed both watching again the lecture by Jacobs on a year of living biblically. When surfing around on the site we came across the lecture by Martin Seligman which initially attracted Linda most. However the opening of the lecture attracted my attention as well. The rest of the lecture is interesting too and explains an interesting distinction between ‘a pleasant life’, ‘a good life’ and a ‘meaningful life’. Funny to know that you can have a good life even without being capable to have a relationship / experience love! You need a hobby (in this case bridge of all possibilities) and a job (maybe even more disappointing: options trader) and experiencing a ‘flow’ when being involved with either of those and there you are. Isn’t life easy?!
