READING: Our most commonly held formula for success is broken. Conventional wisdom holds that if we work hard we will be more successful, and if we are more successful, then we’ll be happy. If we can just find that great job, win that next promotion, lose those five pounds, happiness will follow. But recent discoveries in the field of positive psychology have shown that this formula is actually backward: Happiness fuels success, not the other way around. When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive at work. This isn’t just an empty mantra. This discovery has been repeatedly borne out by rigorous research in psychology and neuroscience, management studies, and the bottom lines of organizations around the globe. In The Happiness Advantage, Shawn Achor, who spent over a decade living, researching, and lecturing at Harvard University, draws on his own research—including one of the largest studies of happiness and potential at Harvard and others at companies like UBS and KPMG—to fix this broken formula. Using stories and case studies from his work with thousands of Fortune 500 executives in 42 countries, Achor explains how we can reprogram our brains to become more positive in order to gain a competitive edge at work. Isolating seven practical, actionable principles that have been tried and tested everywhere from classrooms to boardrooms, stretching from Argentina to Zimbabwe, he shows us how we can capitalize on the Happiness Advantage to improve our performance and maximize our potential. Among the principles he outlines: • The Tetris Effect: how to retrain our brains to spot patterns of possibility, so we can see—and seize—opportunities wherever we look. • The Zorro Circle: how to channel our efforts on small, manageable goals, to gain the leverage to gradually conquer bigger and bigger ones. • Social Investment: how to reap the dividends of investing in one of the greatest predictors of success and happiness—our social support network A must-read for everyone trying to excel in a world of increasing workloads, stress, and negativity, The Happiness Advantage isn’t only about how to become happier at work. It’s about how to reap the benefits of a happier and more positive mind-set to achieve the extraordinary in our work and in our lives.

READING: Dalam gejolak bisnis sekarang ini, sebuah paradigma baru sedang berkembang. Di tengah-tengah terungkapnya keserakahan banyak CEO, para pemimpin visioner meyakini sebuah tujuan, yaitu bahwa mereka bekerja demi kepentingan diri mereka sekaligus orang lain. Mereka menyadari bahwa tujua itu adalah visi dan "ruh" mereka, yang membuat para pegawai setia dan dengan sukarela memenuhi apa yang dituntut perusahaan dari mereka, bahkan tidak segan-segan melampauinya. Buku ini berangkat dari premis bahwa kita berada di zaman ketika bisnis dan kerja menduduki posisi sentral dalam kehidupan. Buku ini mengungkapkan bagaimana para pemimpin bisnis, manajer, dan bahkan pegawai dapat menemukan "flow" dan tidak hanya berusaha mencari kebahagiaan mereka sendiri, tetapi juga berkontribusi bagi terwujudnya sebuah masyarakat yang adil dan terus berkembang. Csikszentmihalyi mengidentifikasikan faktor-faktor krusial bagi terselenggaranya sebuah bisnis yang baik (good business): kepercayaan, komitmen untuk mendorong pertumbuhan personal dari para karyawan, dan dedikasi untuk menciptakan produk yang bermanfaat bagi umat manusia. Inilah buku wajib bagi siapa pun yang menghargai kontribusi positif dari para individu dalam dunia bisnis yang tak pernah berhenti berubah ini. [Mizan, Pustaka, Referensi, Bisnis]

READING: """ Kisah nyata seorang perempuan yang mencoba mencari apa yang bisa membuatnya bahagia. Ia kemudian menjalani apa yang disebutnya """"Proyek Kebahagiaan"""". Proyeknya dimulai bulan per bulan sampai mencapai satu tahun. Setiap bulannya, ia membuat satu resolusi. Dari mempraktikkan kasih sayang; meminta pertolongan; mendapatkan lebih banyak kesenangan; menulis rasa syukur di buku catatan; sampai melakukan sesuatu tanpa mementingkan hasil. Ia juga menerapkan berbagai pendapat yang pernah ada tentang menjadi bahagia--dari pendapat para ahli filsafat, rohaniwan, hingga pendapat Oprah. Semua dijalaninya untuk menemukan mana yang berhasil membuatnya bahagia dan mana yang tidak. Penemuannya ternyata banyak yang mengejutkan. Di antaranya, ia menemukan bahwa uang dapat membeli kebahagiaan asal digunakan secara bijaksana; bahwa inovasi dan tantangan adalah sumber kebahagiaan yang dahsyat; bahwa mentraktir diri sendiri dapat membuat perasaan kita menjadi lebih tidak enak; bahwa mengekspresikan perasaan-perasaan tak nyaman tidak akan menghilangkan perasaan itu; bahwa perubahan yang sangat kecil bisa menghasilkan perbedaan yang sangat besar. Semua penemuannya ini berkisar dari hal-hal yang sangat praktis sampai hal-hal yang bersifat mendalam. Ia menuliskan pengalamannya ini dengan sangat cemerlang sehingga membuat buku ini memukau sekaligus menghibur; membuka pikiran sekaligus enak dibaca. Hanya dengan membaca satu bab dalam buku ini, sejuta inspirasi untuk menghadirkan kebahagiaan hidup akan datang menghampiri kita!"""

READING: Siapa bilang mencuri itu buruk? Mencuri adalah keharusan! Tak Percaya? Orang-orang hebat sudah membuktikannya. Bintang basket Kobe Bryant mengaku bahwa semua gerakannya di lapangan dia curi dari para idolanya. Untuk menciptakan komputer Mac, Steve Jobs mencuri ide dari Xerox. Beatles awalnya adalah band yang menyanyikan lagu-lagu penyanyi lain. Tak ada yang orisinal. Semua kreasi berasal dari sesuatu yang pernah ada. Dan kreativitas tidak pernah lahir begitu saja, butuh proses juga perlu diasah. Mencuri ide adalah awal menumbuhkannya. Kreatif adalah melihat dari sudut pandang berbeda. Kreatif adalah mampu menyiasati keterbatasan. Kreatif adalah menemukan solusi terbaik dari permasalahan. Buku ini mengembangkan kreativitasmu, siapa pun kamu, dalam bidang apa pun kamu berkarya.

READING: Why are some people able to make positive change while others remain the same? In his international bestseller, The Happiness Advantage, Harvard trained researcher Shawn Achor described why happiness is the precursor to greater success. This book is about what comes before both. Because before we can be happy or successful, we need to first develop the ability to see that positive change is possible. Only once we learn to see the world through a more positive lens can we summon all our motivation, emotion, and intelligence to achieve our personal and professional goals. In Before Happiness, Achor reveals five actionable, proven strategies for changing our lens to positive: - The Most Valuable Reality: See a broader range of ideas and solutions by changing the details on which your brain chooses to focus - Success Mapping: Set goals oriented around the things in life that matter to you most, whether career advancement or family or making a difference in the world - The X-spot: Use success accelerants to propel you more quickly towards those goals, whether finishing a marathon, reaching a sales target, learning a language, or losing 10 pounds - Noise-Canceling: Boost the signal pointing you to opportunities and possibilities that others miss - Positive Inception: Transfer these skills to your team, your employees, and everyone around you By mastering these strategies, you’ll create an renewable source of positivity, motivation, and engagement that will allow you to reach your fullest potential in everything you do.

READING: Although there are as many answers to the question of how organizations can gain competitive advantage in today's global economy as there are books and experts, one lesson seems very clear: traditional answers and resources are no longer sufficient. This seminal book offers not only an answer regarding how to gain competitive advantage through people, but also a brand new, untapped human resource--psychological capital, or simply PsyCap. Generated from both the positive-psychology movement and the authors' pioneering work on positive organizational behavior, PsyCap is a rigorous concept: to be included in PsyCap, a given positive construct must be based on theory, research, and valid measurement, must be open to development, and must have measurable performance impact. The positive constructs that have been determined to best meet these PsyCap criteria--efficacy (confidence), hope, optimism, and resiliency--are covered in separate chapters in Psychological Capital and Beyond. Following an exploration of other potential positive constructs such as creativity, wisdom, well-being, flow, humor, gratitude, forgiveness, emotional intelligence, spirituality, authenticity, and courage, the authors summarize the research demonstrating the performance impact of PsyCap. They go on to provide the PsyCap Questionnaire (PCQ) as a measurement tool, and the PsyCap Intervention (PCI) as a development aid. Psychological Capital and Beyond provides theory, research, measurements, and methods of application for psychological capital, a resource that can be developed and sustained for competitive advantage. Each copy includes a complimentary PsyCap online self-assessment.
