Mark Jaffe, former Walt Disney Company senior executive, spent many years creating happy moments for millions of people. At a young age he had come to realize that his happiest life was attainable. After much studying, observing, and cultivation, he ultimately enjoyed an enduring happyness through a singular focus on identifying what worked and what didn’t.
Through it all he's had a life journey, perhaps similar to your own, that included career successes and failures. A marriage that succeeded until it didn’t. Two fabulous kids. A dog. And the learned ability to be very happy, which, 40 years later, still keeps him happy.
