What you really want to do is master your social life.

To me, over the years, life will come at you in three phases:

Phase 1. Achieving Physical

Health

The hardest part of life is being born. Its' when you are most susceptible to disease and the environment.

According to one study, "More than a third of babies die on their first day of life -- making the birth day the riskiest day for newborns and mothers almost everywhere."

If you are reading this as an adult you have already won the genetic lottery. 

Phase 2. Acquiring Resources

This is not just making money. But in the modern world you primarily will use some form of paper money to exchange resources with people.

You must be able to accumulate enough resources for yourself and your family or you are on a quick path to a short, unhappy life. 

You don't need billions, but you have to at least get to some level of financial independence.

As the Nobel prize winning author Daniel Kahneman says, you need to make at least $75,000 per year in order to achieve the happiness 'tipping point'.

I think that figure is just the starting point in moving from scarcity to independence. You should strive to go beyond that level into real prosperity and even beyond into global impact.

3. Mastering The Social Game

Social is the hardest. Today's book of the day is "Social" by the Harvard professor, Daniel Lieberman.

He says the default state of the human brain is social.

When we are not adding up our taxes or playing chess we revert to thoughts of our social standing:

Does he/she like us?

Who is gossiping about us at work?

Will they promote me?

Who can we trust?

This is why everyone in the modern world spends all day starting at their IPhone and their Facebook.`

Lieberman says that if Facebook was a religion it would be the third most active religion after Christianity and Islam.

Crazy...

Your social skills will be the ultimate determinant of your success at finding the good life.

Pretty much everything you need to know about the first 2 phases of life have already been figured out. It's not rocket science on how to be fit and healthy. And I can pretty much show anyone the 67 steps to becoming a millionaire.

But social - oh brother - social is hard.

Music makes people happy. But is everything that makes you happy good for you?

 

Music makes people happy. No one can argue that.
 
But is everything that makes you happy good for you?
 
Probably not.
 
Scott Weiland, the lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver, was at my house not too long ago. 
 
He is famous for saying he LOVES heroin.

Scott explained, "(Heroin) took me to where I'd always dreamed of going. I can't name the place, but I can say that I was undisturbed and unafraid, a free-floating man in a space without demons and doubts."


The Grand Theory Of Everything says that the ultimate step in your life must be to achieve happiness.
 
 
Heroin Happiness...

But it can't be any old type of happiness. It can't be "Heroin Happiness" like Scott Weiland found. That type of happiness is one step forward, 10 steps back.
 

You want quality happiness.

In the modern world you can't go far without hearing music.
 
13 Years Of Music...
One study says that you will listen to about 13 years' worth of music before you die.

That's a hell of an investment of time and energy. 

Some scientists says music is a complete waste of time.

The Harvard Professor, Steven Pinker says in "The Language Instinct":

"As far as biological cause and effect are concerned, music is useless. Music appears to be... a cocktail of recreational drugs that we ingest through the ear to stimulate a mass of pleasure circuits at once... Music could vanish from our species and the rest of our lifestyle would be virtually unchanged."

Strong words.

I know many people who love music and would argue to the death that Pinker is wrong.

For today's book of the day I read the fascinating "This is Your Brain On Music" by Daniel Levitin.
 
Levitin says that the scientists like Pinker have it all wrong.
