#44: Reinventing To Find Your Place In The World (Gretchen Rubin)

March 8 2019

Gretchen Rubin didn’t become The Happiness Lady by accident. She was clerking for Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor when she realized that she was not really interested in the law, but in “power, money, and sex.”  She went to the library and took a book on how to sell your book proposal, followed it, and never looked back.


Today Rubin is the author of “The Happiness Project” and now, “Outer Order, Inner Calm: Declutter and Organize to Make More Room for Happiness” and the founder of the podcast, Happier with Gretchen Rubin. In a high octane chat with CoveyClub founder, Lesley Jane Seymour, Rubin reveals the steps she took to transition from one lucrative profession to another.  How to find that “thing” for yourself? “Start by asking yourself who do you envy? Envy is ‘I want that’ but in a painful way.”
