My wife, daughter and I have been going to Cabo San Lucas during spring break for years. This year was no exception. The weather in Cabo this time of year is not much different than in San Diego. In Cabo, however, there is no lawn for me to mow or other things on my “honey-do” list. Much of our time during spring break is spent relaxing and reading. While on break this year, I read Shawn Achor’s The Happiness Advantage
suggests most people follow the formula “you work hard, you become successful and then you become happy.” For students, this often means “if I work hard, I will get that good grade and then I’ll be happy.” Achor suggests that the formula is broken and argues that happiness
breeds success. I don’t disagree with him.
