The Happiness Advantage

A friend sent me a link to a TED talk which she titled "funny and interesting." The speaker is Shawn Achor, and my friend was right - he is funny and interesting. In a very entertaining way, he explained that while we think success will make us happy, it's just the opposite: happiness will make us successful.

I'm now reading his book - also funny and interesting - and it's reinforcing some of the other concepts on happiness that I've been reading about over the last year. If you need a dose of happiness and have about 12 minutes, take a look.


  1. Wow, he talks fast but his message has weight. I read recently that comparisons are the #1 destroyers of happiness. I thought, ohhh yeah, there's some truth there.

  2. This is wonderful! I sure do like the way Shawn thinks. Thank you for sharing this with us.

  3. thank you for such excellent links !!
    I am on this quest - big time

  4. Thanks for sharing. That was 12 well spent minutes.x
