Meaning & Purpose: A Talk with Happiness Initiative

Doors open at 7, and the 1-hour long talk will start at 7.30 pm promptly, with a Q&A Session after.

Have you ever wondered why are you doing what you are doing? Why is it important? What is your purpose?
If these questions are familiar to you, then this talk-workshop is relevant to you

We spend more than a third of our lives working. And yet how many of us go through the same cycle of work everyday, but yet don’t see a meaning what we do? We humans are unique because of our ability to create meaning. Reciprocally, the meaning in our lives also creates us.

Meaning in life has been examined by ancient philosophers and modern day scientists, and in the recent two decades, research on meaning in life has gained much traction. Meaning in life is associated with many positive life outcomes, and this upcoming talk-workshop with the Happiness Initiative explores:
- What is it?
- Why is it important?
- Do you have it?
- How do you cultivate it?

The talk will be conducted by Simon Leow, founder of Happiness Initiative, to share some of these ideas. Simon holds a Masters degree in Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, and is now embarking on his PhD in Psychology in the Singapore Management University (SMU). He is very passionate about understanding relationship between work and well-being, and how work can be a source of well-being, rather than a source of pain.
