We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
I love a good TED talk and there are many hundreds to choose from.
In this talk, given by Matthieu Riccard, the topic of altruism is presented as a means of decision making.
What is altruism? Put simply, it’s the wish that other people may be happy. And, says Matthieu Ricard, a happiness researcher and a Buddhist monk, altruism is also a great lens for making decisions, both for the short and long term, in work and in life.
