“Deciding to live a life in happiness is like getting fit for the summer. It requires determination and prioritization.”
Do you want to be one of 10 million happier people?

If that sounds at all amazing to you make sure to press play! In today’s interview with Google X engineer Mo Gawdat, who is also the author of the book Solve For Happy, we talk about how your purpose in life is to be happy and how it’s, as a matter of fact, our human duties to make sure we are.
Mo wants to retruthing how we solve for happy. Because if you think about it, does success leave to happiness or is it actually the other way around? Listen to find out how one of these assumptions are actually backed with true, scientific facts, and maybe it will change how you think about and design your life.
Who is Mo?
Mo Gawdat is a remarkable thinker and the Chief Business Officer at Google’s [X], an elite team of engineers that comprise Google’s futuristic “dream factory.” Applying his superior skills of logic and problem solving to the issue of happiness, he proposes an algorithm based on an understanding of how the brain takes in and processes joy and sadness. Then he solves for happy.
In 2001 Mo Gawdat realized that despite his incredible success, he was desperately unhappy. A lifelong learner, he attacked the problem as an engineer would: examining all the provable facts and scrupulously applying logic. Eventually, his countless hours of research and science proved successful, and he discovered the equation for permanent happiness.
Thirteen years later, Mo’s algorithm would be put to the ultimate test. After the sudden death of his son, Ali, Mo and his family turned to his equation—and it saved them from despair. In dealing with the horrible loss, Mo found his mission: he would pull off the type of “moonshot” goal that he and his colleagues were always aiming for—he would share his equation with the world and help as many people as possible become happier.

Happiness leads to success, not the other way around. Research shows that happy people are more productive, more accepted and more trusted, which means you will do your best doing what you love. Happiness is the default setting that we were supposed to operate from as humans. So I urge people to make happiness their priority and to have everything else follow.When you do that, I guarantee that you will be more successful, more loving, and more loved.
