What we think drives our happiness often doesn’t. So what does? Drawing on her research and classes with Naomi Bagdonas, Stanford GSB General Atlantic Professor Jennifer Aaker, PhD ’95, discusses the importance of humor in defining your purpose.

She received the Distinguished Teaching Award, Citibank Best Teacher Award, Robbins Best Teache...
