All That Happiness is from Adam Gopnik looks at accomplishments vs achievements

Techstination feature for Monday, April 22, 2024

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.      Author Adam Gopnik is back again with another title that we can all make good use of.   All That Happiness Is …Some Words on What Matters.   And what The New Yorker staff writer examines here…are our accomplishments versus our achievements…

“I give the simple example of when I was 12 years old I sat on the bed in my bedroom in Montreal struggling with a 40 dollar folk guitar to learn the chords of Beatles songs.  I had to do it myself, stretch and bend my fingers painfully around the fretboard and on the steel string.  That week, those weeks, those years of learning guitar are the foundation really for everything I’ve done since.”

There’s a big difference between accomplishment and achievement…when it comes to happiness.    Gopnik’s All That Happiness is a short title arriving this month…with some lasting lessons.

You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
