Gretchen Rubin

Author, Better Than Before, The Happiness Project, Happier at Home.

Started a “happiness project” because she wanted to change her life, without changing her life.

Believes habits are the prequel to a happy life and sees four ways to successfully adopt new habits.

“The belief that unhappiness is selfless and happiness is selfish is misguided. It’s more selfless to act happy.”

Thinks the key to converting an activity into a habit is scheduling.

Believes you’re more likely to stick with a habit if you set out to do it every day than only do it a few times a week.

“I can do anything I want, but I can’t do everything I want.”

Thinks people who are the most successful have figured out what works for them as opposed to modeling their behavior after what worked for others.

Believes unhappiness is a habit you can learn to break.
