Talk: The Happiness Track

We are taught that getting ahead means doing everything that’s thrown at us (and then some) with razor-sharp focus and iron discipline, that success depends on our drive and talents, and that achievement cannot happen without stress. Seppala debunks the outmoded attitudes that shape our modern approach to success to show that finding happiness and fulfillment may, in fact, be the most productive thing we can do to thrive professionally. Filled with practical advice on how to apply these scientific findings to our daily lives, "The Happiness Track" is a life-changing guide to fast tracking our success and creating the anxiety-free life we want.
