In Episode 76, we talked about manifestos, and if you’re coming to the Seattle event, we’d love to highlight a few manifestos from listeners. So send us your manifesto for work, life, parenting, marriage, exercise, clutter-clearing — whatever! And maybe we’ll talk about it with you on stage.

It’s often easier to do something every day than to do it some days. I mention The Happiness Project One-Sentence Journal: A Five-Year Record. A lot of people have told me that this daily, manageable structure makes it easier to keep a journal.

Happiness Stumbling Block
The “China Syndrome” — the fantasy that we’ll automatically become adults. (By the way, I’m having my book group over tonight, and I will use my wedding china.)
Jessica asks “How can I handle my annoyance with my good friend who is always late?”
I rehearse angry thoughts in my head.
Elizabeth’s Gold Star
Elizabeth gives a gold star to her friend Karine for doing the research to find a vacation rental for their two families.
