Two recent Gallup Management Journal articles provide some interesting insights into research on how you can create the conditions for more happiness in your life.
It boils down to this:
- Live with people/someone who has high wellbeing and it will boost your chances of having high wellbeing.
- Donating money rather than buying material goods for yourself and get greater return for your wellbeing.
Interestingly it was found that a person is “more than two times as likely to be thriving when another person in the same household is thriving, compared to living with a person who is not thriving. Specifically, your chances of having thriving overall wellbeing are 63% if you live with someone who has thriving overall wellbeing, 29% if you live with someone who has struggling overall wellbeing, and 20% if you live with someone who has suffering overall wellbeing.”
Would the same apply to the “wellbeing” of a business?
Will a business thrive when it is positioned closely with other businesses that are doing well?
Would a business do better when it focusses on the value it gives its customers and not the profits delivered?
