Shawn Achor: The happy secret to better work

In his lively presentation, Achor describes an with the way we measure success in the workplace: the goal is always moving. Once you achieve a goal, business leaders make the next goal more difficult. Our brains are wired to seek out goals and this perpetually posting success literally stresses the brain. Achor suggests this is, at least in part, why work is considered stressful for so many people, especially later in their careers. As a counter, Achor suggests doing the following things on a daily basis:

  • Write down three things you are grateful for
  • Journal a positive experience
  • Exercise
  • Meditate
  • Perform a random act of kindness
