\n\
\n\
\n\

\Update: \More than a \million\ people have taken my Four Tendencies quiz! Yowza. \\
\n\
\

\n\

If you want to take the Quiz to tell you whether you’re an \Upholder \like me, an\ Obliger\ like Elizabeth, a \Questioner \like my husband\, \or a\ Rebel \like Chris Guillebeau of \"\Side Hustle School\,\" it's \\here\\.\

\n\

The quiz was built by the brilliant team at \Aperio Insights\.\

\n\

\Try This at Home\: Find an oasis: a place in your week that you struggle to reach, and is delightful once you get there.\

\n\

This is related to the power of the \Strategy of Treats\. We must have treats! Having an oasis, getting a treat -- these pleasures are not mere frivolous self-indulgence; they help us to exercise self-mastery.\

\n\

I mention my love of children's literature. If you'd like to see my list of my 81 favorite works of children's and young-adult literature, it's \here\.\

\n\

\Happiness Hack\: If you know children who like to listen to great audio content, check out \Pinna \-- the brainchild of many people, including our beloved Andy Bowers. \Pinna\ (which is the word for the outer ear, get it?) is the home of terrific audio stories and podcasts for kids 4-12. So much \great content\ there! It's a subscription service, which means your children can listen ad-free.\

\n\

\Four Tendencies Tip\: Ashley, an Obliger, has a Rebel son who clashes with her husband (Rebel or Questioner). She wants to communicate with her son in a more Rebel-minded way, but her husband objects that pussy-footing around their son in this way will set him up for failure in the real world.\

\n\

To read more discussion of raising a Rebel child, check out \\\The Four Tendencies\\\ book.\

\n\

\Listener Question\: Jenny used the surgery as the catalyst to use the \Strategy of the Clean Slate\ to change some of her eating habits. Now she's wondering if she can use her week's holiday as a \"planned exception\" -- or whether a week is too long.\

\n\

Read here to learn more about \"\planned exceptions\.\"\

\n\

Jenny also notes that she's an \"\Abstainer\\" -- read here to learn more about the \Strategy of Abstaining\. I'm a huge Abstainer, myself. Wow, life became so much easier when I realized that aspect of my nature.\

\n\
\n\
\n\
\n\
\n\
\n\

\Gretchen's Demerit\: I've been doing what's \urgent\ instead of what's \important\. For instance, I'm spending hours dealing with my emails -- which give me a quick and easy fix of accomplishment -- instead of thinking about my big, long-term aims.\

\n\

\Elizabeth's Gold Star\: Elizabeth's gold star goes to my friend \Jessica Lahey\, author of \\The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed\\, who coincidentally came to speak at Jack's school. She gave a great talk that really resonated with Elizabeth and other parents.\\
\n\
\

\n\

Jessica also has a podcast \"\#AmWriting with Jess and KJ\\" with another friend of mine -- \KJ Dell’Antonia\, a columnist and contributing editor at the \New York Times Well Family\. On their podcast, they discuss writing, reading, and getting things done.\

\n\

I love it when worlds collide!\

\n\

\Update:\ Our listener Laura suggested that we start a segment called \"\Before and After\\" to feature success stories from listeners. Great idea! Send us any examples of transformation. I do love any \"before and after\" story.\\
\n\
\

\n\

\Try This at Home\: Say \"Down with boredom.\"\

\n\

A note on a friend's computer taught me a giant lesson about writing -- and about life. \Down with boredom\. Whenever possible, skip the boring parts!\

\n\

\\\"Happier\\

\n\

In writing all my books, if there's an aspect of my subject that bores me, I figure out a way to write around it (and no one has ever seemed to notice). I try to do the same thing in all aspects of my life. \Down with boredom\. It's not always easy, but it's often more possible than you might imagine.\

\n\

As Elizabeth points out, one of my Secrets of Adulthood is \"The opposite of a profound truth is also true.\" So in addition to say \"Down with boredom,\" try \"Embrace boredom.\" Or put another way, \"If you can't get out of it, get into it.\"\

\n\

Here's the post I mention, about \\6  Tips for Coping with Boredom\\.\

\n\

\Happiness Hack\: If you're not sure what to do, ask people with knowledge or authority, \"\What would you do, if you were in my situation?\\"\

\n\

I got this idea from Elizabeth Gilbert's memoir \\Committed\\. She writes:\

\n\
\

\\"What would you do now, if you were in our situation?”\ I asked. This is a technique I’ve learned to use over the years whenever I find myself at an impasse with a dispassionate customer service operator or an apathetic bureaucrat. Phrasing the sentence in such a manner invites the person who has all the power to pause for a moment and put themselves in the shoes of the person who is powerless.\

\
\n\

This hack is often very, very helpful.\

\n\

\Interview\: We talk to \\Jancee Dunn\\ and \\Tom Vanderbilt\\. Jancee Dunn is a journalist and bestselling author of several books, including her hilarious, candid new book\\ How Not to Hate Your Husband After Kids\\. This book combines her memoir about her own marital challenges with advice that she got from various relationship experts (including an FBI crisis negotiator!) about how to handle the stresses on a marriage after a baby is added to the mix.\

\n\

To add to the discussion, Jancee’s husband \\Tom Vanderbilt\\ joined us, too. Tom is also a very accomplished, bestselling author and journalist. He’s written several books, including two books that I love: \\You May Also Like: Taste in an Age of Endless Choice\\ and \\Traffic: Why We Drive the Way We Do (and What It Says About Us)\\.\

\n\

As I was reading, I thought a lot about the \Four Tendencies\ -- Jancee is an Obliger, Tom is a Rebel. (If you want to take the quiz, to find out if you're an Upholder, Questioner, Obliger, or Rebel, the \quiz \is here.)\

\n\
\n\
\n\

\Gretchen's Demerit\: Speaking of husband's, I lost my temper with my husband -- in the middle of the night, for no reason! (Gold star to Jamie for being good-natured about it.)\

\n\

\Elizabeth's Gold Star\: Elizabeth gives a gold star to the firefighters of California who have worked so hard this year.\

I've thought a lot about a conversation I had with a friend. I was surprised when she complained, \"Whenever I ask my husband what he wants for dinner, he just says, 'Everything you cook is good.'\"\

\n\

\"Isn't that a good answer?\" I answered, puzzled.\

\n\

\"No! I wish he'd say, 'I wish you'd make that curried chicken I love so much.' Then it would be so fun to make it.\"\

\n\

I pondered this remark for a while. And then I figured it out.\

\n\

It can feel very non-demanding and accommodating to say “Oh, whatever is fine with me” -- I'm sure her husband meant to be easy-going and encouraging -- but sometimes, when we’re very specific about what we want, we help others to enjoy the pleasure of giving.\

\n\

\Have you ever been made happy because you were able to give someone \exactly\ what he or she wanted because that person told you exactly what it was?\\

\Try This at Home\: Introduce a note of whimsy. A little whimsy is a way to poke fun at yourself, lighten a difficult situation, or just make life more light-hearted.\

\n\

\Happiness Hack\: If you're having trouble getting out of your own head, or getting relief from your worries, listener Lee suggests tuning into one particular color in your surroundings to create mindfulness. Given my own obsession with color -- sparked by our discussion of \"choose a signature color\" in episodes \71\ and \75\ -- I particularly loved this hack.\

\n\

I'm so obsessed with color, in fact, that I'm working on a little book about color, \My Color Pilgrimage\.\

\n\

\Interview/Four Tendencies Tip\: We had a great conversation with the team from the hilarious, thought-provoking podcast \"\By the Book\.\" Our own producer Kristen Meinzer and co-host \Jolenta Greenberg\ came in to discuss how the Four Tendencies affects their work as a team. Jolenta is a Rebel, so test your knowledge of the Four Tendencies -- Kristen is likely, then, to belong to what Tendency? If you guessed Obliger, you're right! Rebels almost always pair with Obligers. There are many strengths, and some challenges, to this kind of partnership.\

\n\

\\\"\"\\

\n\

Don't know if you're a Rebel, Obliger, Questioner, or Upholder? Take the quiz \here\.\

\n\

We mentioned the interview we did with Manoush Zomorodi, which is \here\.\

\n\

\Elizabeth's Demerit\: Elizabeth desperately needs a new laptop, and she bought one months ago, and has never even taken it out of a box. We discussed this kind of \"incomplete upgrade\" happiness stumbling block in \episode 72\.\

\n\

\Gretchen's Gold Star\: I finally figured out how to back up my phone on my computer. Major personal triumph..\

This fall  marked a big milestone in the life of my family, because my older daughter Eliza went off to college -- very bittersweet.\

\n\

It’s actually been easier than I anticipated, and as much as people criticize technology, I think that technology has made the transition less difficult, for all of us.\

\n\

Nevertheless, it’s a big change, and I’ve thought a lot about it. And I’ve been comforted by something that happened when Eliza was starting nursery school. All the parents were a little freaked out about “separation,” as they call the process of leaving your child at school, and I was anxious too.\

\n\

The nursery school director, who is very wise and also had grown children at that time, said to me gently, “\This is the first of many times that you will say good-bye to your child\.” I’ve thought about that observation many times over the years, and it put this new kind of “separation” into perspective.\

\n\

\When they go off to college is one time, of many times, that I will say good-bye to my children.\\

\n\

\\\"\"\\

\n\

If you'd like to read a terrific parenting book written by that wise nursery-school director and her colleague, check out \\Practical Wisdom for Parents: Raising Self-Confident Children in the Pre-School Years\\, by Nancy Schulman and Ellen Birnbaum.\

Remember Love.","content":"\

One of my strengths as a writer -- if I do say so myself -- is writing endings. I’ve mentioned that I’ve been working on a side-project book, called \Outer Order, Inner Calm\.\

\n\

This book will be a collection of all the tips and strategies I’ve gathered over the years, about how to fight clutter – a subject I \love\.\

\n\

As I was writing about suggestions like “Follow the one-minute rule,” \"Don’t put things down; put them away,” “Go shelf by shelf,” “Observe Power Hour,” “Someplace, keep an empty shelf,” “Don’t stockpile,” I was struck by a tip that seems to me to be the most important of all, and it’s the final suggestion in the book.\

\n\

\\"Remember love.\"\\

\n\

When your parents are driving you crazy because they’ve kept every piece of your schoolwork, all the way back to kindergarten, or when you’re driving yourself crazy because you can’t bring yourself to toss any of your husband’s ragged college t-shirts, remember: \\all\ \\\this junk is an expression of love\.\\
