Emma Seppälä: "The Happiness Track" | Talks at Google

source: Talks at Google    2016年3月4日
In her new book "The Happiness Track: How to Apply the Science of Happiness to Accelerate Your Success," Emma Seppälä draws on the latest research in the fields of cognitive psychology and neuroscience to argue that happiness is the key to fast tracking our professional and personal success.

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.

Seppala is the Science Director of Stanford University’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education, founder and editor-in-chief of Fulfillment Daily -- a news site dedicated to the science of happiness -- and a frequent contributor to Harvard Business Review and Psychology Today. She holds a B.A. and Master’s in East Asian Languages and Cultures from Columbia University, and a Ph.D. in Psychology from Stanford.
