Most recently we did a podchat discussing happiness through the lens of work, productivity and profits. It's entitled: Happiness - A Human Resource
In my reflection and continued research, I ran across this Ted Talk. It's entertaining and practical and worth the 12 minutes to read!
I've concluded that promoting happiness is a good thing in all life contexts. I also have come to believe that happiness is a discipline of sorts. I see my ability to consistently be happy as my "happiness quotient". How about you?
