Social scientist and professor Arthur Brooks joined ‘One Nation with Brian Kilmeade’ to discuss his new book on finding success and happiness in the second half of life.

ARTHUR BROOKS: Look, this book we’re talking about is your 401K plan for happiness, and the 401K plan, the pension plan for happiness, is not about retirement, it’s about getting older and getting happier. And that means using your wisdom, your pattern recognition, your knowledge, your teaching ability, more and more and more. Each of us should become more like instructors as we get older.

Early on you work hard, you have a tireless energy, you are able to focus in an incredible way. It’s kind of your Mark Zuckerberg intelligence you have early. You answer all the questions someone asks you. Later, you know the right questions to answer, and that’s an incredibly important thing.

You may be a start-up entrepreneur in the past, later making venture capital because you will be able to teach, you will be able to see patterns. In fact, we should all go to mentors and instructors as we get older.
