Jeff Fajans discusses his yearlong tracking project, achieving the "good life" via positive psychology based QS. In his project, he specifically looks at character strengths and how they relate to one's vitality and vital engagement via two indicators of hedonic and eudaimonic wellbeing with the purpose of really learning what makes him thrive and how can he enhance his life. As a result of his project, he believes that by using positive psychology as a framework, we can learn to focus on our strengths and enhance the vitality and vital engagement of our lives and ultimately lead us to the "good life".
