which offers useful advice resources and insights to entrepreneurs and business owners The article below was originally published at Inccom By Jeff Haden Happiness: everyone wants it yet relatively few seem to get enough of it especially those intheir early forties (I’m no psychologist but that’s probably about when many of us start thinking “Wait; is this all there is”) Good news and bad news: unfortunately approximately 50 percent of your happiness your “happiness set-point” is determined by personality traits that are largely hereditary Half of how happy you feel is basically outside your control Bummer But that means 50 percent of your level of happiness is totally within your control: relationships health career etc So even if you’re genetically disposed to be somewhat gloomy you can still do things to make yourself a lot happier Like this: 1 Make good friends It’s easy to focus on building a professional network of partners customers employees connections etc because there is (hopefully) a payoff But there’s a definite payoff to making real (not just professional or social media) friends Increasing your number of friends correlates to higher subjective well being; doubling your number of friends is like increasing your income by 50 percent in terms of how happy you feel And if that’s not enough people who don’t have strong social relationships are 50 percent less likely to survive at any given time than those who do (That’s a scary thought for loners like me) Make friends outside of work Make friends at work Make friends everywhere Make real friends You’ll live a longer happier life 2 Actively express thankfulness According to one study couples that expressed gratitude in their interactions with each other resulted in increases in relationship connection and satisfaction the next day–both for the person expressing thankfulness and (no big surprise) for the person receiving it (In fact the authors of the study said gratitude was like a “booster shot” for relationships) Of course the same is true at work Express gratitude for employee’s hard work and you both feel better about yourselves Another easy method is to write down a few things you are grateful for every night One study showed people who wrote down 5 things they were thankful for once a week were 25 percent happier after ten weeks; in effect they dramatically increased their happiness set-point Happy people focus on what they have not on what they don’t have It’s motivating to want more in your career relationships bank account etc but thinking about what you alreadyhave and expressing gratitude for it will make you a lot happier And will remind you that even if you still have huge dreams you have already accomplished a lot–and should feel genuinely proud 3 Actively pursue your goals Goals you don’t pursue aren’t goals they’re dreams and dreams only make you happy when you’re dreaming Pursuing goals though does make you happy According to David Niven author of 100 Simple Secrets of the Best Half of Life “People who could identify a goal they were pursuing(my italics) were 19% more likely to feel satisfied with their lives and 26 percent more likely to feel positive about themselves” So be grateful for what you have… then actively try to achieve more If you’re pursuing a huge goal make sure that every time you take a small step closer to achieving it you pat yourself on the back But don’t compare where you are now to where you someday hope to be Compare where you are now to where you were a few days ago Then you’ll get dozens of bite-sized chunks of fulfillment–and a never-ending supply of things to be thankful for 4 Do what you excel at as often as you can You know the old cliché regarding the starving yet happy artist Turns out it’s true: artists are considerably more satisfied with their work than non-artists–even though the pay tends to be considerably lower than in other skilled fields Why I’m no researcher but clearly the more you enjoy what you do and the more fulfilled you feel by what you do the happier you will be In The Happiness Advantage Shawn Anchor says that when volunteers picked “…one of their signature strengths and used it in a new way each day for a week they became significantly happier and less depressed” Of course it’s unreasonable to think you can chuck it all and simply do what you love But you can find ways to do more of what you excel at Delegate Outsource Start to shift the products and services you provide into areas that allow you to bring more of your strengths to bear If you’re a great trainer find ways to train more people If you’re a great salesperson find ways to streamline your admin tasks and get in front of more customers Everyone has at least a few things they do incredibly well Find ways to do those things more often You’ll be a lot happier And probably a lot more successful 5 Give While giving is usually considered to be unselfish giving can also be more beneficial for the giver than the receiver Providing social support may be more beneficial than receiving it Intuitively I think we all knew that because it feels awesome to help someone who needs it Not only is helping those in need fulfilling it’s also a reminder of how comparatively fortunate we are–which is a nice reminder of how thankful we should be for what we already have Plus receiving is something you cannot control If you need help–or simply want help–you can’t make others help you But you can always control whether you offer and provide help And that means you can always control at least to a degree how happy you are–because giving makes you happier 6 Don’t single-mindedly chase “stuff” Money is important Money does a lot of things (One of the most important is to create choices) But after a certain point money doesn’t make people happier After about $75000 a yearmoney doesn’t buy more (or less) happiness “Beyond $75000… higher income is neither the road to experience happiness nor the road to relief of unhappiness or stress” say the authors of that study “Perhaps $75000 is the threshold beyond which further increases in income no longer improve individuals’ ability to do what matters most to their emotional well-being such as spending time with people they like avoiding pain and disease and enjoying leisure” And if you don’t buy that here’s another take: “The materialistic drive and satisfaction with life are negatively related” Or in layman’s terms “Chasing possessions tends to make you less happy” Think of it as the bigger house syndrome You want a bigger house You need a bigger house (Not really but it sure feels like you do) So you buy it Life is good… until a couple months later when your bigger house is now just your house New always becomes the new normal “Things” only provide momentary bursts of happiness To be happier don’t chase as many things Chase a few experiences intead 7 Live the life you want to live Bonnie Ware worked in palliative care spending time with patients who had only a few months to live Their most common regret was “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself not the life others expected of me” What other people think–especially people you don’t even know–doesn’t matter What other people want you to do doesn’t mater Your hopes your dreams your goals… live your life your way Surround yourself with people who support and care not for the “you” they want you to be but for the real you Make choices that are right for you Say things you really want to say to the people who most need to hear them Express your feelings Stop and smell a few roses Make friends and stay in touch with them And most of all realize that happiness is a choice 50 percent of how happy you are lies within your control so start doing more things that will make you happier Others in this series: Contact us at [email protected] while Microsoft’s only selling the Xbox One in 13.

realpolitik versus principle However one prominent figure in the Labour Party who was caught up in Saturday’s attack believes it is both because Trumps comments could stir other extremists Richard Angell who is director of a Labour Party think tank called Progress had taken a single bite of his duck and date shish meal when dining in the Arabica Bar & Kitchen in Borough Market when the

Krasinski had to submit the final cut of his sophomore directorial feature The Hollars to Sundance his good friend Tom McCarthy watched the movie McCarthywho directed and co-wrote last years Best Picture Oscar winner Spotlight and whose advice consequently is probably worth listening totold Krasinski "You end every scene perfectly" To which Krasinski responded "Thank you" To which McCarthy shook his head "You dont want to do that" The Hollars (Aug 26) is a dramedy about a messy family The mom (Margo Martindale) is headstrong and has for years been ignoring symptoms of a brain tumor the discovery of which sets the story into motion The dad (Richard Jenkins) is reduced to a walking puddle of tears the big brother (Sharlto Copley) divorced unemployed and directionless and the younger brother (Krasinski) professionally stunted and terrified of impending parenthood with his pregnant girlfriend (Anna Kendrick) A family this messywhich is to say most of themdoes not call for neat little bows It was this messiness that attracted Krasinski to the project in which he initially planned only to star But when the movie written by Jim Strouse looked like it might be headed to the place where unfunded indies go to die Krasinski stepped in to direct and produce He wasnt sure he would go through with it though unless he could properly cast it So he called up Martindale and asked her if she remembered him Krasinski had met Martindale on his first acting job a Marshalls commercial he did at age 13 Martindale he recalls "was the very nice lady getting some very reasonably priced handbags" The way she treated him on set made him go home to his mother that night and declare that rumors of a cold and cutthroat Hollywood must certainly be false As he got older he came to recognize the actorwhose recent credits include The Americans The Good Wife and Justifiedas not just a nice person but one of the great character actors of our time Thankfully Martindale did remember her young costar and agreed to be in his movie The Hollars is Krasinskis second effort as a director (his first was the 2009 David Foster Wallace adaptation Brief Interviews With Hideous Men) and hes acted in both While some directors find it difficult to dissociate their director-selves from their actor-selves in a given scene Krasinski says acting in The Hollars was crucial "As an actor and a director youre looking for the same thing" he says "Youre looking to be moved and I knew it just by standing next to them" Krasinski was compelled to make a movie about family ties before his first daughter was born in 2014 but her birth four months before filming transformed the experience "To say that my understanding of the movie changed would be the biggest understatement of the year" he insists "Theres an existential magnet to family and thats what I hope people get from this Im not saying you have to love your family or that familys not complicated but theres something beautiful about a group of people youre from Thats your origin story I just had this whole new understanding of my parents and my brothers and now my daughters" Their origin story of course includes Krasinskis wife Emily Blunt who stars in this falls buzzy psychological thriller The Girl on the Train which he unhesitatingly deems "the best thing Ive ever seen her do" They will appear togetheror at least be heard togetherin next years animated film Animal Crackers and Krasinski says they hope to be colleagues again in the future "Weve always talked about doing a movie or a play together We just dont want the idea of us being married to supercede the movie so we have have to find something thats that specific" he says "If you have any ideas let us know" Write to Eliza Berman at [email protected]

Status of known non-native species introductions and impacts (updated)

first_imgAntarctic biodiversity and ecosystems are under threat from introduced non-native species. Currently the Antarctic Peninsula and off shore islands are the most invaded areas. Invasions are likely to increase, facilitated by climate change and increased human activity in the region. Despite success in eradication of non-native plants, established non-native invertebrate species have already begun to increase their distribution within Antarctica with largely unknown impacts upon native organisms and habitats. Further scientific research could usefully investigate surveillance and detection techniques, the rate and extent of microbial and marine introductions, rates of transfer of native and non-native species between Antarctica eco-regions, and devise optimal prevention and ultimately eradication methodologies.last_img

Oxford reveals gender pay gap

first_imgOxford University has revealed it has a mean gender pay gap of 24.5%, which is higher than the national average.The median pay gap shows a 13.7% disparity between pay for male and female staff members. The figures also show that 82% of staff earning over £100,000 are men. It was further revealed that although more women than men are employed by the University, there is a mean bonus pay gap of 79%.The University has blamed the gap on the lack of women in senior roles and has committed to increasing the representation of women across the institution. Vice chancellor, Louise Richardson, said: “We are pleased to publish our data on gender equality. It is one important way of maintaining momentum and ensuring accountability.“The lack of women occupying senior roles in universities remains a challenge to the Higher Education sector. Oxford, while an exceptional institution, is no exception when it comes to gender equality. “We continue to work, however, with enthusiasm, energy and determination to address the considerable imbalance.” The release follows a change in the law which now requires employers of more than 250 people to calculate and publish their annual gender pay gaps. The largest imbalance was in the upper quartile of pay where men outnumbered women by 25.6%. The opposite was true of lower quartile of pay where women outnumbered men by 30.2%.The median gap, which is viewed as a more reliable figure, fell below the national average.The pro vice chancellor and University advocate for equality & diversity, Dr Rebecca Surender, said: “While it’s encouraging that our median gender pay gap is lower than the national average, we are not complacent and we recognise our need to continue to enable workplace gender equality across the University.“We are committed to achieving one third representation of women across University leadership roles and on selection committees, and for women to comprise a minimum of 30% of Council and each of its main committees.“Although there is a more work for us all to do, the University is clear that achieving gender equality is a key priority and we are committed to working to make this a reality.”The data only covers University staff with Colleges expected to publish their own figures. Few colleges have released these statistics with Balliol College and Keble College showing the highest mean pay gaps with 16.2% and 18.5% respectively.New College has also published its calculations showing a median gap of 24.3% and a mean of 12.6%.last_img
