Eighth edition, November 2013, Greenleaf Book Group Press
Already a classic, The Slight Edge offers a path to success via awareness of the importance of the numerous small decisions we make each day. Jeff Olson describes his philosophy as easy to do and easy not to do—and each decision we make is a step in the right direction or away from it. There is no middle ground, he says. This anniversary edition offers “The Secret of Happiness,” a chapter based on discoveries in positive psychology. The author carefully outlines what you can expect by adding steps pioneered by Shawn Achor in The Happiness Advantage to your daily routine and taking advantage of research results: “Success does not lead to happiness,” he writes. “It’s the other way around: more happiness creates more success.”
Listen to Jeff Olson discuss the Slight Edge and other concepts of success and well-being on our Live Happy Now podcast, now available on iTunes.
