When our ambition is bounded

I have listened to Dan Gilbert: The Surprising Science of Happiness in TED Talk


I agreed to his statement. Yes, some things are better than others, we should have preferences that lead us into one future over another but when those preferences drive us too hard and too fast because we are overrated the difference between these futures we are at risk. When our ambition is bounded it leads us to work joyfully. When our ambition is unbounded it lead us to lie to cheat, to steal, to hurt others, to sacrifice things that we value. Our longings and our worries are both to some degree overblown because we have within us the capacity to manufacture the very commodity we are constantly chasing when we choose experience.


Indeed its a choice! Choice choice choice~ "Our longings and our worries are both to some degree overblown, because we have within us the capacity to manufacture the very commodity we are constantly chasing when we choose experience" ~ Dan Gilbert
