This week’s The Distillery is a bit different in regards to the delivery of the content. A few of us from the office attended a financial planning conference in Austin earlier this week. While there, we had the pleasure of attending a presentation by Shawn Achor, a Positive Psychologist who graduated from Harvard University. Shawn’s company, Aspirant, is dedicated to the study of those people in the population who are happier than the average (i.e. the outliers). From his research he aims to gain insight into how to increase happiness for not only the employees of the companies that hire him, but also for those of us who struggle with lower or average levels of happiness.
Happiness, or lack thereof, affects not only our personal lives and families, but also how we perform in school and at work, which often determines the success / outcome of our financial plans. If you have 12 minutes of time to invest, we hope you enjoy this captivating video by Shawn Achor. Read More >
