The Algebra of Happiness

The Algebra of Happiness

Scott Galloway

Overview

Don't let the word 'algebra' scare you. The only equation we need to know is this one: X + Y = Happiness.

X and Y are called variables and represent unknown numbers that add up to another number. In a normal math equation, we would see something like X + Y = 9, for example. We don't know what X and Y are, but they must add up to 9. The value of one depends on the value of the other. If X = 1, for example, then Y must equal 8 so they add up to be 9.

Learning to be happy follows the same pattern. This way, you can discover what values we must combine to be happy. The trick is knowing that some variables change depending on others, like how much you work or play, for example. This is exactly what The Algebra of Happiness teaches you. Are you ready to dive into the equation of life and happiness?
