Abbott is asking one million people worldwide. Here's why and how.

AbbottWhat does it look like to really live a full life - one that enriches and satisfies, that provides happiness and enables achievement? Abbott is talking to one million people worldwide to find out. And the answers aren't as simple as you would think.

Does living fully look the same to an accountant in Shanghai as it does to an architect in New Delhi or a street artist in São Paulo? What about a factory worker in Detroit or a new mother in Berlin? In today's hyperconnected world that is pulling us together in so many ways, how do our cultural differences, life experiences and personalities influence what it means to live a full life?

Early in this quest we're seeing preliminary trends, like the role health plays in a full life in Shanghai and the importance of family in New York. We'll have to see if this is confirmed as we go global with our research. The one thing that is becoming apparent is just how personal it gets when we talk to people about life.

This global quest is at the heart of what our company does - finding answers that have helped people live healthier, better lives for more than 125 years.

To find out what it really means to live fully, we're asking people to share their "#fullosophy" - their own, unique ways of seeing and being that get them to their "fullest." Anyone can participate at www.LifetotheFullest.abbott, sharing what is truly important to them.
