The happiest man in Silicon Valley

I refer to Chris Yeh as my unofficial life coach. I could wax poetic about how much he helps me, but it would embarrass us both.

Chris is one of the happiest people I’ve ever known – and it’s genuine, not a show. (Spend Thanksgiving with a person and his family and you’ll see any cracks that may be there. All I saw was Chris’s hyper-competitive streak when we teamed up against his wife and sister for a game of Pop5. We won, of course.)

So it made sense for me to introduce him to my friend Gretchen Rubin (who, long story short, I only know because of his and my mutual friend Ben Casnocha). Today, she’s posted her happiness project interview with Chris, and it’s well worth reading.

PS I highly recommend Gretchen’s beautiful latest book, which is equal parts enlightening, inspiring, and moving. It didn’t spend several weeks at the top of the New York Times bestsellers list for nothing.

  1. Thanks for the shout out! And I am happy to report that my undefeated streak in Pop5 remains alive.

  2. When I saw Tim for lunch recently, he said he’d been over to your house to play Pop5.

    ME: It’s so fun! I love it!
    TIM: Yeah, they told me about you.
    ME: ??
    TIM: They said you kept playing after the game was over.

    Great memories, laughing just thinking about Alicia acting out “Daisy Duke”…
