171 | Daniel Lerner on Positive Psychology, Science of Happiness, Importance of Relationships, and Knowing Your Strengths

I was first connected with Dan when I heard the class he teaches at NYU is the most popular undergraduate elective. I was intrigued. Turns out he teaches a class called Science of Happiness to thousands of students each semester and has recently turned those concepts into a book. We dive into his theories on happiness, getting into a ‘flow state’, and positive psychology in this episode. Dan is a fascinating guy so we get into his unique and winding career path which led him from working as a music agent to becoming a peak performance coach working with everyone from athletes to CEOs.  We get into how  conversation changes when your phone is in sight, knowing your strengths and how to use those to help guide you in relationships and career, plus he explains deliberate practice vs flow. I liked getting to know Dan, he was a really nice guy and I’m excited for you to hear our conversation. If you have any questions or just want to talk, join the listener Facebook group.
