I am rounding off this week with a very humourous and enlightening TED Talk video from Shawn Achor.
Shawn is a psychologist who studies the relationship between potential, success and happiness.
In his talk, he discusses potential. How do we measure potential?
Potential in schools is measured by the average that a group of students perform then based on that finding, teachings are geared to the average learner. Shawn says:
“If we study what is merely average, we will remain merely average.”
If we change our focus, our potential will change too.
Shawn also describes
5 exercises to create lasting happiness.
Well, why don’t I stop rambling and let him it explain it for himself. Enjoy:

30-Day Challenge – Day 5
So four days of yoga are under my belt. I’m still jerky and stiff but I am seeing small progress everyday. Day 5, here I come. Only 25 to go.
Don’t forget to continue through the weekend. Those days count too.
How’s it going with you? Have you kept up with your challenge?
