Abstract: Confidence, certainty and conviction: these have traditionally been qualities we would associate with a strong leader. And yet, such strong qualities may be the very thing preventing meaningful progress. One of my favourite books of 2013 was Oliver Burkeman's The Antidote: Happiness for people who can't stand positive thinking. In this book Burkeman challenges many of the conventional positive thinking approaches to happiness, instead advocating what he calls the negative path to happiness.
