September Book of the Month Club

The Happiness Advantage

By Shawn Achor

Below you will find the REPLAY  from our September 21st, LIVE Instagram Broadcast. 

Part 2: The Zorro Circle, The 20 Second Rule, & Social Investment

  • The Zorro Circle
  • Find the positive in a situation and tackle one thing at a time instead of getting overwhelmed by the larger issue.
  • If you feel like everything is out of control, you will project this onto your goals for success.
  • Take a project and break it down into smaller more manageable chunks.
  • Reverse engineer your goals!


  • The 20 Second Rule
  • Focus your energy toward those things you want to be successful at and withdraw energy from those things that drain you.
  • Take 20 seconds at a time to shift where your energy is going.
  • Willpower weakens over time, instead make smaller energy changes toward things you want to do.
  • Set yourself up for success: create “triggers” that help you do the things you WANT to do.


  • Social Investment
  • Social interaction DOES boost your possibilities of being successful and happy.
  • Pick those you invest in and those who invest in you well.
  • Show up for them in the same way you expect them to show up for you.
  • Community helps you bounce back from setbacks more quickly.
