“Happiness follows a predictable equation: it is not the events in our life that makes us unhappy, it is the way we think of them. The method I have developed over 10 years of personal research, lays out an engineering approach to reach a stage of near-uninterrupted happiness, regardless of the events in our lives. Including in the workplace.”

Unless you aim to change things tenfold, then it is not worth your innovation, time or effort.

For this training session, Mo Gawdat will be accompanied by Anahita Moghaddam.
