How to be Happier…

Hint: You can't find it on your phone

We live in a world where:

Smart

Innovative

Technology

RULES

When in reality, that’s all secondary to the need for:

HUMAN CONNECTION

You can create great platforms, build amazing apps, but without connection, there’s little real meaning for you…and the people who use them (and yes, they’re actually people, not end-users).

There are countless apps on my phone that I never open. I keep them because they hold the promise for a better, smarter, healthier life,…but the truth is, in the end, it’s all about the moments… the simple joy of spending time with others that is the secret to being happy.

Thrive Global
People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
