TED Tuesday: Robert Waldinger— What makes a good life? Lessons from the longest study on happiness

"There isn't time, so brief is life, for bickerings, apologies, heartburnings, callings to account. There is only time for loving, and but an instant, so to speak, for that."

Good Morning Folks,

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. The food, family, the stories... always remind me that I have much to be grateful for. Each morning, I'm eager to jump out of bed and get to the office. I'm incredibly fortunate in that I love what I do. My team and I work hard every day to deliver the best opportunities to help you achieve your dreams and ambitions, whatever they may be.

But what else keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life? If you think it's fame and money, you're not alone – but, according to psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, you're mistaken. As the director of a 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction. In this talk, he shares three important lessons learned from the study as well as some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on how to build a fulfilling, long life.

Join 11 million others to experience my selection for this TED Tuesday, Robert's brilliant TED talk: What makes a good life? Lessons from the longest study on happiness

As we usher in the "happiest time of the year," I wish you all the health, wealth and happiness that you deserve.

Have a GREAT day, be happy and…

Love Life!

At FSO, We Are Thankful For You

Good Morning Folks,

Our lives are peppered with mentors, bosses, colleagues and teachers who have helped us with our professions. But I bet you're like me and got your first career lesson from family.

I'll never forget mine. I think of it almost daily around the holidays.

Holidays are a time for family and good memories. And for saying thanks.

At FSO, we have a lot to be thankful for. We had another record year, advancing rapidly from a blank canvas to the fastest growing privately-owned outsourcing company on the planet. But, the best is yet to come (more about that in my 'kickoff" message back here on Jan 7).

Saying "thank you" — sincerely and with heart — feels good. Not just to the person receiving it, but also to the person offering it. And that's part of work too. It's hard to remember, as we process our 580th post, that behind each message being read is a person..

So, as we celebrate the end of one year and usher in another, I want to say "thanks" to you. The support I feel from you, my readers, our customers, employees and clients, is an unending source of encouragement to keep at it. 

It is a huge gift to me that you are interested in what I have to say and spend your valuable time reading and sharing it. It touches me and I am so thankful for it. 

Zig's New Years Resolution: 
"Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive about what could go right"

We'll be pausing the blog until Monday so our ever-growing FSO family can spend quality time with their own. 

Thanks again, and Happy Holidays!
