Happiness Is a Choice: Lessons from the Oldest Old

Hosted by

John Leland

Saturday, October 27

12:00pm-1:30pm

What would it be like to live without fear of old age or death, to find joy in living long and not forever? If you knew you had a short time to live, how would you want to spend it? What's stopping you from living that way now?

On the heels of my New York Time bestseller "Happiness Is a Choice You Make: Lessons from a year among the oldest old," I'll invite you into a conversation about personal transformation and the route to a good life in this contentious time. A surprise answer: If you want to be happy, think like an old person. And I'll share some lessons in living from some folks who have lived long enough to know something about life. What do they know that the rest of us don't? Find out.
