The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

Mo Gawdat, today’s guest on Spartan Up, tells Joe De Sena happiness, like fitness, is something you can build.  He’s the author of "Solve for Happy'' and former Chief Business Officer of Google [X], and today he’s on a mission to teach the art and practice of happiness.  


Mo experienced a uniquely devastating event, the death of his son, it inspired in him a drive to understand the formula of happiness. Happiness, he says, follows a predictable equation.


"You can actually follow an algorithm, similar to the idea of if I eat healthy and work out I'll be fitter. If I make happiness, my priority, and do the work, I'll be happier."
