2/1/17 - Reflection on another TED talk on Happiness (Your Choice) Search TED.com for more TED talks related to happiness. Choose one that we have NOT watched in class and watch it. Write a summary and reflection, similar to what you did on Post #2.
1/25/17 - Summary and reflection on Dan Gilbert's TED talk: Use your notes to describe the findings and arguments that Gilbert presents in this talk (similar to precis). Then, in another paragraph, reflect on the implications of these findings. What are the take-aways for you and in what ways, if any, are they significant?
1/12/17 - Reflection on Happiness. In this post, you may reflect on any of the questions we have explored, related to happiness, or you may explore the theme from a different angle: What makes you happy? What is happiness? How important is it? What is the secret to getting it? Why are so many people unhappy?
