The Happiness Advantage Book Club

“The key to daily practice is to put your desired actions as close to the path of least resistance as humanly possible. Identify the activation energy—the time, the choices, the mental and physical effort they require—and then reduce it. If you can cut the activation energy for those habits that lead to success, even by as little as 20 seconds at a time, it won’t be long before you start reaping their benefits.”

-Shawn Achor; The Happiness Advantage

Meet others ready to change their habits to create a happier, more successful life. This book combats the idea that happiness is on the other side of success. Instead, scientifically proving that happiness actually boosts success. Learn and practice the seven principles of habits that can change your life with the support of others.
