Business Consulting For The 21st Century Via A Holistic & Intelligent Approach

Happiness is a constant. Success comes and goes.

Consumed => “Positive Intelligence” by Shawn Achor on HBR.

=> My value add (i.e., left a comment)…

No doubt, the brain is like any other organ in the body. If you put garbage into it, you’ll get garbage out of it. It also goes without saying that at a personal level it’s easier to curate happiness on a day to day basis than it is to battle multiple external forces to achieve a fleeting moment of success.

I find it interesting that we keep teaching the next generation to be successful, when we should – based on this article and many others like it – be teaching them to be happy. On the other hand, it’s somewhat disheartening to think about how generally unhappy the citizens of the USA are and the challenges we as a collective are up against. One can’t help but wonder if under those circumstance there is not much hope, even over the long term. Perhaps I should borrow someone’s rose colored glasses?

I enjoyed this article. I’m just not to sure it takes a team of PhDs to reiterate one of life’s true constants: GIGO.
