24% didn't know if they were in a relationship, blog article written by Ted Prodromou

In a study by Shawn Achor, 24% of Harvard students didn't know if they were in a relationship. 


The average number of romantic relationships over four years at Harvard is less than one. 

You're not going to believe the next one... 

The average number of sexual partners over four years is 0.5. 

I guess you don't go to Harvard to have a good time. 

These stats are from our April book of the month, The Happiness Advantage: How a Positive Brain Fuels Success in Work and Life by Shawn Achor

We read and discuss one book each month in the Mastermind Book Club

Most people think you become successful, THEN you become happy. 

Achor turns this belief upside down. 

Science reveals this formula to be backward: Happiness fuels success, not the other way around.

After spending 12 years living in a Harvard dorm, working as a Proctor, and researching positive psychology, he has endless stories about Harvard students. 

These students are the best of the best who went from the top 1% in high school to just another Harvard student. 

They worked their butt off in high school to reach the top of their class. 

Once they reach Harvard, they have to work harder to compete against the best of the best. 

The stress takes a toll on many students. 

The other day I shared If Zorro was on LinkedIn, where I described the Circle of Control. 

The Zorro Circle is one of the seven principles Achor shares in the book.
