Robert Waldinger is a psychiatrist and the Director of the Harvard Study of Adult Development. He conducted one of the most comprehensive longitudinal studies in history.

What keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life? If you think it’s fame and money, you’re not alone. In this TED talk, Dr Waldinger compares these common notions to scientific data on the good life gathered from a 75-year-long study of adult development.

He shares three important lessons learned from the study as well as some practical wisdom on how to build a fulfilling life.

Dr. Waldinger is the author of numerous scientific papers as well as two books. He teaches medical students and psychiatry residents at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, and he is a Senior Dharma Teacher in Boundless Way Zen.
