Delivering Happiness Distilled
The CEO and Chief Happiness Officer of Delivering Happiness, Jenn, provides an introduction (emphasis added):
From a scientific sense, research shows that we’re super bad at predicting what will give us long-term happiness (ironic, since it’s one of the most basic human desires).
From a business sense, happier companies prove to be more successful and sustainable in the long-term.
From a common, human sense, we can each make the choice to deliver happiness in the world. Whether it’s to ourselves, our family and friends, or a complete stranger, research shows that if we deliver happiness, we get happier in return.
First it was a book, then it was a bus tour, and now, we’re the Delivering Happiness Movement. We’ve evolved into a company with a cause — to spread and inspire happiness at work, in communities and everyday life.
How are we doing it? With a cool, frosty cup of ICEE:
I — Inspiration
C — Community
E — Education
E — Experience
From a scientific sense, business sense, and human sense, you’ll enjoy how the comic book reflects the original book, bus tour, and movement!
I particularly enjoyed how the comic book builds up to the 3 key areas:
Customer Service [Brand], which build our brand and drives word of mouth.
Culture, which led to the formation of our core values.
Employee Training & Development [Pipeline], which would lead to the creation fo our Pipeline Team.
… and the ultimate conclusion …
In the end, it turns out that we’re all taking different paths in pursuit of the same goal: happiness.
… and Tony Hseih’s three happiness frameworks:
Happiness Framework 1: Happiness is about Four things: Perceived Control, Perceived Progress, Connectedness (number and depth of your relationships), and Vision/Meaning (being part of something bigger than yourself).
Happiness Framework 2: The fundamental premise behind Maslow’s Hierarchy of Human Needs is that once a person’s survival needs are met, then humans are more motivated by other non-materialistic needs such as social status, achieve, and creativity.
Happiness Framework 3: Three Types of Happiness: Pleasure, Passion, and Higher Purpose.
If you enjoyed the original book, you’ll love the comic book!
