Dan Harris’ book 10% Happier started a revolution within myself. For as long as I can remember, I have been a sarcastic pesimistic human being. About 9 months ago, that peaked and I was an all out miserable excuse for a person. I had won the official title of the office Eeyore and was picking so many fights with my immediate family that I was quickly becoming the outcast that no one wanted around. Beyond that, I was constantly ashamed of the thoughts, unhappiness and childish moodswings. Something had to change and 10% Happier provided the catylist. 3 simple words, 1 very important question – #isituseful. By asking that question in every act or decision I make I have been able to positively change my internal and external world.
In this episode I officially welcome you to the YourLifeUseful podcast. We discuss Dan’s book and also another very important book, Mark Epstein’s Going to Pieces Without Falling Apart.
YourLifeUseful is a podcast and blog that are designed to spread the #isituseful movement. This is my journey to self-exploration, self-awareness, self-growth and yes, self-help. I am just a normal guy that needed to get my responses in check. So hand around! Some episodes will be me talking on a specific topic, others will be interview shows, and some will be a mix of both – but rest assured, all will be fun.
