So, just after starting this blog about happiness I recieved an email Newsletter from Amanda Gore and guess what the subject was… Wired for Joy!
Here is a little snippet from her Newsletter.. I think it is very wise advice!
What’s the Best Thing That Has Happened to You Today?
I challenge you to greet everyone in this way – watch their faces light up!
Begin your staff meetings with asking everyone to answer the question “what’s the best thing that happened to you since we last met” – it will transform the group dynamics! You will be amazed at how much better the meetings flow and at the improvement in creativity and ideas.
Leave it as a message on your voice mail! “Hi – I can’t take your call right now but if you tell me the best thing that’s happened to you all day – I’ll call you back!”
Ask your colleagues to do this daily, as well as your clients, customers and family.
Asking this question will make you popular!
If you do this consistently, people will look forward to seeing you, because for some reason that they won’t understand, they will like being around you and feel good when they are with you.
Remember this is a very sophisticated way to change a persons physiology as they release ‘happy’ drugs when they recall something pleasant!
This is such a great idea, I am going to start doing it straight away and will report back on my experiences! If you do this already or you are going to join me in this venture please let me know your experiences too! x
