The Secret to Happiness

The Secret to Happiness | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

There have been several books written about the subject of happiness including several from Tal Ben-Shahar ("Happier", "Even Happier" and "Being Happy") and Zappos CEO, Tony Hsieh who wrote Delivering Happiness. All great books if you're looking for a deep dive into the subject of happiness.


But I came across a quote from the Dalai Lama XIV that really nailed it for me:

Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions.

5 Habits Of People Who Always Get What They Want

5 Habits Of People Who Always Get What They Want | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

You’ve been offered a job but the salary wasn’t the number you were hoping to hear. Or you’ve received a bid on a project and it’s under what you think it’s worth. Instead of accepting the deal in disappointment or firing back with another amount, sports agent Molly Fletcher says it’s time to start a conversation.


Unfortunately, most of the world doesn’t ask for what it wants. A recent survey by Salary.com found that just 44% of people negotiate for a better salary.


And companies are happy when you don’t negotiate, says Fletcher: “Few offer their best price out of the gate,” she says.

Interesting article: You believe a lot fewer ridiculous things than even the smartest people did just a few hundred years ago, but that doesn't make you smarter than them, just less dumb.

9 Essential Habits of Remarkably Effective People

9 Essential Habits of Remarkably Effective People | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it
You don't have to be born able to execute at a high level. Here's how you can develop that vital skill.


There's a huge biggest difference between being efficient and being effective.


Efficient people are well organized and competent. They check things off their to-do list. They complete projects. They get stuff done.


Effective people do all that ... but they check the right things off their to-do list. They complete the right projects. They get the right stuff done.

Ivo Nový's insight:

And everything starts with goals. Effort without a genuine purpose is just effort. Effective people don't just know what to do--they know why. They have a long-term goal. They have short-term goals that support their long-term goals.
