One of the things that makes me feel guiltiest about procrastinating so much is that I often don’t find out about significant current affairs in my field until at least a few days after they’ve happened. So, guiltily, I’d like to say RIP to Prof. Christopher Peterson who passed away last week.

Prof. Peterson was one of the founding fathers of the positive psychology movement and contributed an enormous volume of work to our knowledge of wellbeing, particularly in the areas of character strengths and optimism.

Truly an awe-inspiring academic.
