One of my favourite Ted Talks by Shawn Achor, who is the CEO of Good Think Inc., where he researches and teaches about positive psychology. Amidst the humour within this Ted Talk, Shawn makes a very valid number of points. One of my ‘favourites’ is that we seem to have ‘pushed happiness beyond the cognitive horizon‘. Get good grades in school, you need to get better ones. You get the promotion, you are thinking about the next step up the ladder!
Have a look and if you like it let me know. If you don’t like it, let me know that too.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did and also take away the points he makes well.
