Cue the music! (I love this song!) This summer I was lucky enough to hear Shawn Achor speak. It was an amazing and inspirational talk and after that I had to read his book, The Happiness Advantage. (How had I missed this book before?!?) There are so many great ideas in this book to kick start your own happiness.
His premise is that happiness needs to come first and then success will more easily follow. If you find ways (and there are many in the book) to be happy in the present then you will be more successful in the future in all ways – more productivity at work, more fulfilling relationships, etc. The book is filled with anecdotal and research based evidence to prove his theory and make you want to start work on your happiness immediately. Its the perfect time to GET HAPPY!!
