If You're so Smart, Why Aren't You Happy?

If You're so Smart, Why Aren't You Happy?

Raj Raghunathan

Overview

In 2015, the most popular online course wasn't one about business. It was one about happiness. The creator of that course is Dr. Rajagopal Raghunathan. and now he's synthesized some of his lessons from that into his first book, If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Happy?

15 years after completing his MBA, he noticed his friends' career and academic success seemed to be very unrelated. What was even less related to both of those was their "life success" as Raj calls it and so he embarked on a research quest to find out why smart people are often so unhappy. He discovered what he calls the "seven deadly sins of unhappiness."

Favorite Quote

"Although happiness is a very important goal for most people, they also seem to devalue it as they go about their lives. That is, people seem to routinely sacrifice happiness for the sake of other goals."
