It’s almost-Spring already and the 14th Friday in our Friday Videos series has finally arrived. This time we have picked out two videos for your entertainment, inspiration and relaxation time and the topics are quite awesome.

How do choices people make affect the outcome of their life situation? What choices are actual, conscious ones and which ones are those that somehow find their way into people’s lives? Think about it, because it happens to most people at some time in life. In this TED Talks talk, you’ll find out what Professor Robert Waldinger who has studied happiness has to say about all of that:

Happy Friday, folks! 🙂
