Dan Ariely: What makes us feel good about our work?
I wish we could move on to a society where we don't have to fear for our income every day. Where we could actually do what we love and not worry about how to turn it into money. I agree with you that right now, the best we can do is work part-time, spend little and do meaningful work in our free time. But that cannot be the only way! This is one of the many reasons I support basic income or a moneyless society altogether. Or at least reducing work hours to 20 per week!

How to help the present-oriented care about things that matter?
Trusting intuition only works for a small amount of people who have built the character to make wise decisions in life and as you said, who are well-rested and feeling good. You cannot trust a kid who wants to eat junk food or watch tv all day long to use their intuition and still make right choices. It just isn't so simple. It might be for you but for most people, it would simply lead them to unhealthy lifestyles.

How to help the present-oriented care about things that matter?
Oh, of course you need to enjoy today and take part in life's little pleasures and they certainly matter, but I'm talking about people who don't find any joy in future-oriented things. People who don't have a healthy balance of time orientation. Because if you only live in the present, it's not sustainable.
