Episode Summary

EDIT
Dr. Happy & Mr. Percival: The Happiness Handbook
AIRED:
Professor Timothy Sharp is founder of The Happiness Institute. Sharp believes the key obstacle to happiness, for most people, is "the tyranny of when..." the addictive but destructive belief that "I'll be happy when...I have more money, a bigger house, or a better job." He matter-of-factly talks about how, by creating positivity in the first instance, we're more likely to achieve our goals, and how this idea is supported by valid and reliable scientific studies.Dr. Happy is later joined in the Utzon Room at the Sydney Opera House by a friend, Mr. Percival, aka vocal artist Darren Percival (director of "ensembleous spontaneous vocalous") who brings inspiration by way of his inventive use of microphones and simple technologies.moreless
