We believe that we should work to be happy, but could that be backwards? In this fast-moving and entertaining TED talk, psychologist Shawn Achor argues that actually happiness inspires productivity and success.
Shawn is a great believer in positivity and appreciating what we have now rather than striving for bigger, better things in life. Have a look at his website Good Think Inc for more information and resources. Shawn has written two books and many articles about happiness and positive psychology.
