Imagine if you could review the lives of over 700 men and pinpoint the exact causes of successes and failures along the way. It sounds too good to be true, but the Harvard Study of Adult Development, possibly one of the longest studies on record, studied 724 men for over 75 years. The study tracked the progress of the men's jobs, relationships, social status, wealth, physical and mental health, happiness, goals, habits, routines, family and more, interviewing them and their partners every year.

Robert Waldinger, a Psychiatrist and the 4th manager of the study, breaks the results down and presents what they found to be the key to happiness amongst all 724 men. SPOILER ALERT: It wasn’t money or power… It was the quality of their relationships that provided the most happiness in their lives. Check out the video below.
