WHAT: The Good Life (it’s all about relationships)

A fascinating TED talk given by Robert Waldiner, the fourth Director of a 75 year study on adult development and happiness by Harvard (the longest study of its kind).

Over a period of 75 years, the lives and adult development of 724 men (and their partners & over 2000 children) has been studied, including work, home lives and health.
Interestingly, the original study group was formed from two different demographics – the first group being Harvard sophomores & the second group from one of the poorest neighbourhoods in Boston but so far the study has shown that at the end of the day it doesn’t come down to wealth, fame or how hard you work – it’s relationships that make the difference.
