If… Then… Mental Model to Happiness

Inline with what I have read once on a book by Srikumar Rao, this video by Sadia talks about exactly such a mental model—which is a flawed one—many people hold in the pursuit of happiness.

If … Then … Model to Happiness

The if…then… model seems to be the root cause of unhappiness, since it puts happiness as a product that one can feel only after some requirements fulfilled. Also, this particular model oversimplifies happiness, something that by nature is way too complex.

Happiness doesn’t work that way in real life, as we all know it.
