Five Ideas to Improve Happiness, Success, and Performance at Work

Many of us have been told that if we work hard, we’ll be successful, and once we’re successful, then we’ll be happy. But decades of scientific research have proven that this formula is backward. Happiness makes us smarter and more efficient-it actually fuels our success. Shawn Achor, Harvard Professor and host of our new program, The Happiness Advantage has a whole set of strategies that you can use to do this. Here are five:

  1. Practice random acts of kindness: Every time you perform an act of kindness, however small, your brain enjoys a spike in happiness. Write a thank-you note, compliment a colleague’s tie, or drop coins in a stranger’s meter.
  2. Invest in your social relationships: Your social support network (friends and family) are the best predictor of success and happiness. Remember to invest in your social support networks!
  3. Exercise: You know about the physical benefits of exercise, but don’t forget the mental ones: just 30 minutes of exercise can act as an anti-depressant. Another study found that executives who started a regular exercise routine experienced a 70% improvement in their ability to make complex decisions.
  4. Start with small, manageable goals: When you fell stressed and overwhelmed at work, don’t panic. The best way to get control of the situation (and improve your happiness) is to start with small, manageable goals. This helps you gain confidence so you can gradually take on larger and larger tasks.
  5. Avoid Multitasking: We live in a world that almost demands that we multitask... And we can do it: the only problem is, when we attempt to multitask, our brain actually decreases our success rate on both of those tasks. So focus on one task at a time!

These are just a few ideas that you’ll find in our new release, The Happiness Advantage. Our customers have already told us they love the program and are using it in the workplace. We think you’ll agree! Take a look at the free preview and see for yourself.

The Fish Philosophy and the Science of Positive Psychology

We’ve been working on a new training video with Shawn Achor. Shawn is the author of the forthcoming book called, "The Happiness Advantage." The other day, we filmed Shawn in New York in front of a live audience. Shawn’s message is based on the latest scientific research in the area of Positive Psychology coupled with anecdotal stories. We’ll have a lot more on Shawn, his amazing ideas, his forthcoming training program, and fun sense of humor soon. But Shawn’s lecture got me thinking about the "Fish Philosophy."

Many of you know about the "Fish Philosophy" and about the video "Fish!" If you don’t, the program follows a group of employees who work at the fish market in Pikes Place in Seattle Washington. Despite working long hours, getting up VERY early, and working in a job that some might consider unpleasant, this team is positive, enthusiastic, and energized by their work. Their enthusiasm is also infections.

The core message of Fish is that you can build a workplace that is fun and engaging if you have a positive attitude and willingness to see work as enjoyable. It is a powerful message, and has swept the business world by storm.

In some ways, the research that Shawn discusses in his book (and video) shows in a concrete manner that the message behind "Fish" isn’t just fun, it has a scientific basis. Fun and attitude are infections. You can "choose your attitude," and you can work to improve your outlook about work.

We will have a lot more on the "how" and "why" in our new video as the production progresses... Stay tuned!!!

Once again... The Problems of Complacency

I’ve written blogs in the past about the problems with complacency. I know that Tom Peters and John Kotter speak about this all time in their writings and speeches. Well, the terrible news in the Gulf of Mexico brings the issue of complacency to mind again.

I don’t think there is any doubt that one of BP’s problems was complacency. Since there hadn’t been any problems in the past, why should they think there would be problems in the future? BP was suffering from a bad case of complacency... Maybe, the managers thought, they could even push the envelope a bit regarding the strictest safety standards... complacency again! Even when the leak started, they seemed to put all their eggs in one basket - the first "cap"... they didn’t seem to have a comprehensive set of back up plans ready to go. Once again they were complacent.

Companies, like BP can get complacent. Government agencies can get complacent, too (think of the Challenger Disaster for NASA and of Katrina). Toyota got complacent about its standards of quality.

We all need to work against complacency. How do you do this? Part of the answer is awareness. Part of it also requires a regular review of processes and procedures. Part of it falls on leaders who need to be aware and willing to challenge the status quo. Human nature tends to fall on complacency. We become comfortable and unwilling to challenge assumptions. But in order to avoid real problems, leaders, managers, and all employees need to try an overcome this natural impulse...
