Shawn Anchor on "The Happiness Advantage"

Here is a fantastic video that was just recommended to me by our new Managing Director at Stamford. He mentioned that not only is it a clinic in how to give an awesome presentation, but also contained fantastic content. He was absolutely right.

Here is my favorite screen shot from the presentation. A quick "action list" of ways to create more positivity in your life, leading to happiness, and then greater success, achievement, and accomplishment.

And, while not very explicit in the video or screen shot, strong social relationships should also be mentioned. They have been the central finding in the majority of positive psychology research on what leads to "the good life" or eudaimonia as Aristotle wrote about 2300 years ago.
