It might help to look at your life as a series of experiments. Sure, some of them will fail. But you’ll learn something, you’ll become a more interesting person, and you’ll live a better story.

Nothing tells your special someone her life is worth celebrating than actually doing that once in a while. In a big way. A time-consuming way. Like the Easter crosswords I designed for Katie when she was little, which we discuss in great detail in this edition of Doing What Works. Katie says it wasn’t so much the presents she got on Easter as it was the fact she had to work for them. And now, looking back, it was how much love I pu...

When your life passes before your eyes, I hope you’re treated to plenty of shining moments. Not just the changes of address or the big promotions, but the epiphanies -- when you realized just how much you had to offer the world or just how wrong your naysayers were.

Bought any Girl Scout cookies lately? The scouts where we live let you use your Venmo app to pay for them! The co-founder of Venmo, Iqram Magdon-Ismail, joins us in this edition of Doing What Works to talk about Ense.

Bubbles. Bubble wrap. A wrapped bottle of bubbly! Don’t you feel better already, just thinking about those? In this edition of Doing What Works, we’ll help you find pockets of joy you may have overlooked. Even better, we'll inspire you to create more of them. And we might just make you wonder if you've heard a better -- or more whimsical -- suggestion in your life.

You don’t know what’s going to make you happy until you try it. The job or the relationship that looks good on paper may not feel so great at, say, ten o’clock on a Tuesday. That’s one reason to say yes to more things, so you can get a better feel for more things. Saying yes is a habit and a mindset. If you practice saying yes to smaller things with low stakes, you might find yourself more willing to take bigger risks. That’s what ...
