Oliver Burkeman: The Negative Path to Happiness and Success from 99U on Vimeo.

“Get motivated!” and “stay positive!” are common bits of self-help advice. But have we gone too far in our penchant for positivity? Leaning on research (including a story about Mount Everest climbers), reporter and author Oliver Burkeman shares the counterintuitive insight of how abandoning goals and allowing some negativity in can actually be helpful.
“Theres a real benefit to find ways to loosen our grip as goal driven people. When you look at successful entrepreneurs…you find they don’t follow this stereotype.” We should instead remain ready to adapt where we are heading and embrace uncertainty.
