The Happy Secret to Better Work
We believe that we should work to be happy, but could that be backwards? In this fast-moving and entertaining talk from TEDxBloomington, psychologist Shawn Achor argues that actually happiness inspires productivity.
When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive at work.
This isn’t just an empty mantra. He suggests this discovery has been repeatedly borne out by rigorous research in psychology and neuroscience, management studies, and the bottom lines of organizations around the globe.
Achor says engaging in one brief positive exercise every day for as little as 3 weeks can have a positive effect.
