B.E. GOOD! Podcast | Paul Dolan: Finding Happiness Through Behavioral Science

On this episode of the B.E.GOOD! podcast:

  • How an “Economics of Happiness” conference and a chance meeting with Daniel Kahneman changed Paul Dolan’s life  
  • Why people are often poor at predicting how health issues will impact our happiness
  • Why we all need to “chill out”, stop reaching – and care less about others’ life choices 
  • What organizations can do to promote happiness in the workplace
  • How the lockdown is experienced differently – and one positive outcome that Paul hopes will come from this crisis 
  • And why sometimes it’s better not to think about what’s next!
