What keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life? If you think it's fame and money, you're not alone – but, according to psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, you're mistaken. As the director of 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction. In this talk, he shares three important lessons learned from the study as well as some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on how to build a fulfilling, long life.

I've always hated it when people tell you money is not the key to happiness.  Ever notice how most of them live pretty comfortable lives and make a decent amount of money?  I'm not talking billionaire, or even millionaire money, but enough to make sure your basic needs are met and you aren't really wanting for anything.

I mean, I get that it is not the answer to everything, but when you are struggling to pay rent, get clothes for your kid and eat, money certainly allows you to focus on the other things that do make you happy.  Without money, all you have time to focus on in life is money, unless you live under a bridge.  Now sure, excessive money will not make you happy and is likely to make you more miserable in the end, more money, more problems, but there is a base amount of money needed, just to sustain yourself, that if you are not making, makes it very difficult to be happy.
