I had a moment of inspiration this week when a friend sent me this Ted Talk, which asks the question: what place does happiness have at work?
According to Shawn Achor, a pretty significant one. Not only does it make for a positive environment, but your brain actually performs better when positive than when negative, neutral, or stressed. You are smarter, more productive, a better salesperson, and more successful when happy.
Tapping into that potential, into the exceptional, is as simple as choosing to be happy? As choosing to scan the world for the positive? As seeing the world through rose colored glasses?
It seems too good to be true. But if it starts with such easy steps, I think it’s worth taking the 21 day challenge. I’m on day 4, we’ll see how it goes.
