Plug into your hard-wired happiness


Passion exists inside you, it does not exist in the job. And if you don’t find a way to ignite it within you right where you are you are not going to find it outside. But if you do find a way to ignite it where you are you then will find that the external world rearranges itself to accomodate the new person that you are becoming. And as you do that you’ll find that miracles happen on a regular basis: persons come up that you’re delighted to meet, new people enter your life, it is just a breeze. Because all you do in your life is take journeys.

Srikumar S. Rao




In general sunt reticent fata de conferinte, articole, carti, aproape orice care trateaza subiectul “happiness” – it’s a touchy subject, foarte relativ de la om la om, iar dupa doi ani de amateur shrink pentru F it’s a veeeeeery touchy subject. Joke aside, am dat pe ted.com peste una dintre cele mai bune conferinte ever pe care le-am vazut, si desi la inceput ascultam cam cu juma’ de ureche, pe parcurs m-a prins din ce in ce mai mult iar la final am ajuns sa dau replay sa ascult unele bucati mai bine. In termeni simpli, in cuvinte frumoase si prin exemple accesibile tuturor, domnul Srikumar S. Rao defineste “happiness” ca fiind the ultimate purpose al fiecarui om (am mai intalnit si cuvantul fullfillment folosit in acelasi scop, conteaza de fapt conceptul din spatele cuvantului, fac aceasta precizare pentru ca jumatate dintre comentatorii de pe ted.com se agata exact de aceasta idee, ca de ce happiness ar fi scopul final, ca pentru unii nu e – cuvantul poate fi intr-adevar derutant) si apoi discuta despre ceea ce presupunem legat de obtinerea fericirii si despre o alternativa in mentalitate. 20 de minute de calitate, un discurs care merita sincer vazut de toata lumea.

P.S. Nu discut despre utilitatea celor propuse de dl. Rao – utilitate in the big scheme of things – fericirea nu e acelasi lucru cu succesul; unhappiness makes us work harder, and strive for things; concentrating on a purpose gives us a direction and a goal; cred ca solutia se gaseste undeva la mijloc – HAVE a purpose, have a goal, but FOCUS on the journey, not on the purpose itself – asa cum foarte frumos zice dl. Rao, “Invest in the proces, not in the outcome.”
