The Happy Secret

Posted on 12 February 2012

I suppose I could be posting any number of TED talks here. This is one a friend recently sent onto me.

A number of things are interesting about this talk. Certainly, the subject matter is interesting and well worth considering. I was also fascinated by Shawn Achor’s use of humour. He has a real ease with telling relevant stories that illustrate his points and keep people listening in anticipation of the comedic pay-offs. His presentation style and message is not that different from Adam Hills’s.

For comparison.

Peace and kindness,

  • Thanks Katherine. That was inspiring. I’m doing my first stand up on March 10th and I want to approach it in a happy, fun way. This is perfect.

    Congratulations! I’m sure you will do well.

    Just remember that venue and material need to match. My first paid gigs were not through pubs, but poetry events where I performed as my ditzy librarian character.
