A great man speaking on happiness

The father of behavioral economics, Nobel laureate 2002, and creator of prospect theory speaks about how being happy in the moment is different to being happy with one's situation in life. In fact, the "experiencing self" has a memory of about three seconds. Note to self.

Two reflections.
This squares with what I've believed since I was 20. That "one needs to balance the possibility that one may die tomorrow, with the probability of living to 80." There is a need to smell the flowers and get an education.
