Dr. Daniel Crosby: Money – We’re Not Wired for Contentment

March 05, 2019 | Episode #1

“You’re Just Not That Great” is not only the title of Dr. Daniel Crosby’s extremely popular TEDx talk, but it is also the framework through which he shares a wide range of insights that can improve our finances and personal lives. Through a discussion of how our primal brains are alive, well, and driving all sorts of havoc, Daniel guides us to find ways to think critically about what drives our behaviors and how we can override our age-old mental hardwiring.

“It’s a lesson to me and I hope to others, to enjoy the journey, to try and find beauty in the mundane—because we are programmed to never really arrive.”
