Today I’m speaking with Mo Gawdat. For 12 years Mo studied every single book and idea on the topic of happiness and developed an algorithm or equation for happiness that allowed him to feel happy no matter what happened. However one day he unexpectedly lost his 21 year old son, Ali, to a simple medical mistake. Could he return himself and his family to their normal resting state of happiness even in such tragic circumstances? He could, and he wrote the book “Solve for Happy: Engineering Your Path to Joy” in memory of his son and as part of a personal mission to deliver his happiness message to 10 million people around the world.
