We are obsessed with TEDTalks in this house. Luckily for us, there are many, many different groupings of TED on Netflix. It's not all we watch, but we watch at least a few each night. This one was one of my favorites I've watched over the past week. 

He also wrote a book called the Happiness Advantage:

"Our most commonly held formula for success is broken. Conventional wisdom holds that if we work hard we will be more successful, and if we are more successful, then we’ll be happy. If we can just find that great job, win that next promotion, lose those five pounds, happiness will follow. But recent discoveries in the field of positive psychology have shown that this formula is actually backward: Happiness fuels success, not the other way around. When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive at work. This isn’t just an empty mantra. This discovery has been repeatedly borne out by rigorous research in psychology and neuroscience, management studies, and the bottom lines of organizations around the globe."
