Alain de Botton is a genius. My favourite living philosopher. He helped me change my thinking about so many things. I follow him on Twitter and his School of Life on Facebook. I read several of his books.
This recent talk in Korea is informative and inspiring, as always. It made me think about the Happiness App for smartphones (reminding you to do 1 of 5 things a day to make you happy or something like this fantastic idea), and in general, his idea of meaning-of-life based businesses is fascinating.
It made me re-evaluate how I view envy, what a brilliant idea to view it as a compass, guide towards ambition, rather than something bad that needs to be suppressed. Sharing this talk with you, because it’s an absolute must see. Happy watching! 🙂
