We live in interesting times. Many people believe they're troubling and dangerous times. And they focus on trouble and danger. Seems to me it makes sense to make the best of where we are and what's going on. One of my favourite ways to do that is read and implement what I learn from well-written, informative and encouraging books.
The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor is one such book. Shawn is one of the world's leading experts on human potential, working to bridge the gap between the science of happiness and performance in our everyday lives. " It's for everyone trying to excel in a world of increasing workloads, stress and negativity. It's not just about how to become happier at work, it's about reaping the benefits a happier, more positive mindset to achieve the extraordinary in our work and our lives."
If you're having a hard day ( hard week -- hard month?), take a look at what Shawn Achor has to say. I think it may change things up for you in a major way.
