The happy secret to better work

10 replies
Hi everyone,

I just want to recommend to you a TED talk about happiness and success:

Shawn Achor: The happy secret to better work

It has a lot of useful tips and starting points on how to become happier and, as a consequence, work better, be more productive, etc.

Here is a quote I loved:
"If happiness is on the other side of success, you'll never get there."

Also, a few simple steps for creating a lasting positive change:
  • 3 gratitudes
  • journaling
  • exercise
  • meditation
  • random acts of kindness

    What a gifted speaker he is!
    I've recently decided that I will be happy regardless of whatever happens.
    Seems simple but I resolved to start happy and not rely on external factors or social norms to influence my emotional state.

    Thanks for sharing

    Anthony

    Holy cow that was a good talk! This line gave me goosebumps, "Reality doesn't shape us. But it's the lens with which you view the world that shapes your reality."

    Such an elegant way to put it!
