I came across this talk by Shawn Achor a couple of months ago; I love his lightheartedness and sense of humour. Even the speed of which he delivers this talk is indicative of his passion for the topic. I watched it again recently when I came across a TED Talk playlist called ‘Work Smarter‘ . Suffice to say, that link has now been circulated to everyone in my team.
Sometimes it’s hard to get motivated at work – everyone goes through peaks and troughs. It’s great to see the psychology behind our drivers for motivation and happiness. Watched this talk by Dan Ariely on the train this evening too, and found the whole thing pretty amazing.
Hope both these videos help you during the work weeks ahead!
