(other people’s) thoughts on happiness

 Shawn Achor: The happy secret to better work

i really like a good ted talk, and this one is particularly short/happy/easily applicable.

i highly recommend it  🙂

and while you’re at it…  i also recommend reading 34 things i’ve learned about life and adventure.  my favorite little excerpt is:

Complacency will suck the life out of you if you let it.

Always try to better yourself. Don’t stop growing. If you do become complacent somewhere and stop improving, move on to a new challenge as quickly as possible.

Also, remember something when considering new challenges: If the outcome is certain, it’s not really a challenge. (Hat tip: Jonathan.)
