Dan Gilbert does not necessarily give a definitive answer about happiness in this video.  But that said…  he’s still very entertaining.

But here’s what I want you to notice in this video… at about 17 minutes in, Dan starts to speak about an interesting experiment involving two groups… one which make an immediate decision and therefore does not have to labor over it through time, and one which makes an immediate decision but has an option to change that decision over a set period of time, therefore creating a mindful churning over that decision.  Notice what the satisfaction levels are with the people who have more time to think vs. those who make a decision and get on with life.
