How We Choose to Be Happy: The 9 Choices of Extremely Happy People–Their Secrets, Their Stories

by Rick Foster and Greg Hicks I love this book! I know, you’ve heard that before, but this book, a gift from a wonderful Bay Area coach, Anke Thiele, is unique in that the authors travelled around looking for the happiest people they could find and telling their stories. In the process of their research and from analyzing the data they created a model, “The 9 Choices of Extremely Happy People” which, if you are in the people development business are absolutely essential questions for your clients. I don’t have time to tell you all the 9 questions, so you’ll just have to get the book!

Let me know what you’re reading and if you’d like to send me a ‘brief’ book report and it’s related to EI/EQ, I’ll post in in the April EQ Update. Send it to 

Take care, my friends, until next time!
