“We experience approximately 20,000 individual moments every day,” writes Tom Rath and Donald Clifton on page 40 of How Full is Your Bucket?

General Mills was in the news lately with that big to-do over portraying an interracial couple in a Cheerios ad. You wouldn’t think that would cause a big stir these days, but hey, it’s the Internet.
