Here’s the full speech.
Professor Srikumar S. Rao discusses why you already have what you need to be happy. You just have to ditch the “if..then” mental construct of happiness and focus your attention on the process itself.
I think he’s on to something, though his explanation of how to re-configure this mental challenge is a bit inadequate.
You can watch some similar videos over at the TED Talks archive.
Worth the ten minute investment.
