The Pursuit of Happiness: Stop It

I wrote yesterday about the concept of mental models. Here's a talk that does a great job explaining how our mental models affect us:

I love this talk because it dives right into challenging fundamental assumptions. That's where the real work of creating possibility begins. It's in the space where our perceived limitations get questioned and new actions can emerge. And, even more importantly, it's in the moment-to-moment process where the "magic" really occurs.

Next time, I will talk about the importance of moment-to-moment process in performance. It's what we call, "presence."

Do you agree with Srikumar Rao? Is happiness inherent?
