Totally Backwards

bcok cover image The Happiness Equation

Canadian Neil Pasricha puts the cart before the horse. And that's a good thing.  Happiness is not the product of great work, Pasricha insists. It’s the primary ingredient that leads to great work. “Our model for thinking about happiness is totally backwards."

The best-selling author of the Awesome series says 50 per cent of our outlook is genetically predetermined. Only 10 per cent is due to circumstances, leaving 40 per cent for intentional acts and attitude shifts.

“That’s a huge lever you can control", he says.
