There’re plenty of reasons I’m doing a masters in applied positive psychology and coaching psychology. They’re all connected with happiness and most of them relate to my work as a professional organiser.
To paraphrase Martin Seligman, the founder of positive psychology, pictured here, I’m studying the science of what makes things better. At the same time I’m learning to be the best coach I can. I’m only one term in (of many – I’m taking it slowly), yet already the stuff I’m learning is filtering seamlessly into my work and personal life. I’m happier and I think I’m better at my job.
