Jodi Wellman, a positive psychology practitioner, embarks on a mission to prevent the pangs of regret by encouraging people to live a life worth living, causing them to confront the absurdity of life's finite nature and reverse engineer a life of delight.
"Let's go all the way to the end and then say, hey, how do I want to be remembered? What's my legacy? Or how, again, would I feel really proud that I lived a life that makes me feel like I was alive, that I showed up as a good parent if that's applicable? And so then that does allow us to work backward and then kind of reverse engineer a life that makes us feel delighted."
