When I was in my teens, I remember watching a biopic on famed Indian mathematician from the early 1900s – Ramanujan. He was often saying “There’s so much to do yet so little time.” He’d work for 30 hours at a stretch and slept for 20. He discovered nearly 4,000 equations + formulas and died at the prime age of 32.
Why do I bring him up? Because he wanted more time to achieve his goals in life which gave him a sense of fulfillment and happiness. As many of us do. But consider this. Why are the happiest people on earth either babies or the elderly enjoying their sunset years? It doesn’t have to be that way. And my guest today, Professor Cassie Holmes, Phd is extremely knowledgeable on the subject. She’s going to enlighten us about her research backed by case studies and science on how to be truly happy, feel content with the time we have, and will even provide strategies we can apply to lead a purposeful, meaningful life.
Dr. Cassie Mogilner Holmes is a professor at UCLA’s Anderson School of Management. Trained as a social psychologist, she earned her PhD at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business and her BA at Columbia. An award-winning teacher and researcher on the role of time in cultivating happiness and satisfaction in life, Holmes’s work has been widely published in lead academic journals and featured in outlets such as NPR, the Economist, the Atlantic, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Washington Post. Happier Hour is her first book. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband Rob and their children Leo and Lita.
