The question is no longer a matter of whether or not technology is good for us; it is now a matter of “What do we do with it?”. And there’s nobody in the world right now more suited to answer that question than Amy Blankson. Through technology, Blankson has been working on implementing positive psychology strategies in new and inventive ways. Take a listen to hear how she does that and how she views the new technology in our lives!

Amy Blankson is the only person to be named a Point of Light by two Presidents (President Bush and President Clinton). She received a Presidential appointment to serve a five-year term on the Board of Directors of the Corporation for National Service and was one of the youngest delegates to the Presidents’ Summit for America’s Future. Amy received her BA from Harvard and MBA from Yale School of Management. In 2007, she co-founded GoodThink to bring the science of happiness to life for organizations and individuals. She is currently doing research in partnership with Google to determine how to make positive psychology strategies stick and create sustainable positive change. She serves as a Visioneer for the Xprize Foundation for Personal Health and was a featured professor in Oprah’s Happiness course. Amy is the author of two books: Ripple’s Effect and The Future of Happiness: 5 Modern Strategies to Balance Productivity and Well-being in the Digital Era.
