Reducing Conflict 30 Spread the Joy

When you spread joy to other people, it comes back to you in multiple ways. It is a law of nature: like gravity. This series of articles has been about how to reduce conflict in your life.

You are in Control of Your Life

Take the opportunity to improve your relationships at work and at home. The quality of your life is not a random variable.  It has to do with what is going on between your ears. Constantly tend to the needs of other people and provide service where you can.  You will find that the joy you bring to others creates a kind of reciprocal joy within yourself.

Manufacture Joy

By following the advice in this series of articles, you will experience lower conflict in your own life, and that is the best way to manufacture joy.  To be helpful, I am including an index of the 30 articles in this series along with links to the short video for each one.  You can scan the titles to review the articles and videos you find most helpful.

My intention is to continue this series of articles, although the attached video series is now complete.  It was originally a series of short videos that I completed six years ago in cooperation with the Avanoo Company.
