People seek many things during the course of their lives. Fame, fortune, wealth and beauty almost always top the list of things that people feel would make their lives happy and satisfying.
However, a Harvard study spanning 75 years that tracked the lives of over 700 men showed a distinctly different paradigm at work.
The Harvard Study of Adult Development is the only research project of its kind to follow participants throughout their lifetime.
The study had two groups. One comprised of Harvard grads, many of whom joined the military to fight in World War II. The other group consisted of men from Boston’s poorest neighborhoods.
Their findings were nothing short of extraordinary.
