My Favorite 2012 Tedx Talk – The Happy Secret to Better Work by Shawn Achor

His presentation, “The Happy Secret to Better Work,” is hysterical but also a very strong gut check for pessimist. Being one, I found myself understanding the truth in his words, but knowing that I don’t always live up to these simple truths.


The presentation below is worth watching and it contains powerful insights we can all learn from.
