I just watched a video on Positive Psychology by Shawn Achor. Achor is a Harvard researcher who has studied the effect on how business is effected by your level of happiness. It’s a REALLY interesting talk because it shows that happiness is not simply attained by achieving your goals because goals are ever changing.
