Study: The Value Of “Noticing Good Things”


I’ve previously posted about how I have students regularly write down the positive events that have occurred in their lives during the week (see The “Three Good Things Exercise”).

I talk about related research in that previous post, but apparently not many studies have been done on doing the exercise in a workplace.

The Powerful Effect of Noticing Good Things at Work is the title of a new Harvard Business Review article talking about a new study that did just that. Here’s an excerpt:


Its results are not surprising, but it never helps to have more research to back up a strategy one is applying in the classroom.

I’m adding this post to My Best Posts On Why It’s Important To Be Positive In Class.
