Recently I attended a talk by my colleague, Anandkumar NC. He had given a very interesting title to his talk, Happy for no reason. In a very entertaining way, Anand shared some of the academic research findings and his personal experience for becoming happy for no reason. I had following takeaways from his talk:
- Two myths block our happiness: myth of more and myth of I will be happy when ...
- Three things rob our happiness: victimhood, blaming and feeling shame.
- Plan the work and work the plan. Only plan and no work results into daydreaming! Work with no plan leads to nightmare!
