Adorable Pictures Make you work harder!

Adorable Pictures Make you work harder!

Well it turns out that those adorable puppy and kitten pictures that you keep hanging on your office wall, placed elegantly on your desk, or conveniently tucked in your wallet for easy access COULD make you work harder.

Japans Hiroshima University recently performed a study in three different groups of students.  One group looked at images of baby animals, another looked at adult animals, and another group that looked at images of food. The group of students that saw the images of puppies and kittens had a 10 percent performance increase, the adult animals only 5 percent increase, and the group that looked at the food had hardly any performance increase… Probably because they were starving. There’s a reason why you don’t put posters of Big Macs that say “Hang in there,” in our cubicles. Work would never get done!

The experts of the study attributed the increase of focus and performance to cuteness triggered positive emotion related to the delight and happiness you get from looking at the adorableness that is baby animals. (On a side note, I’ve been saying that cuteness is motivational in the workplace, why do you think I log in countless hours looking at Joseph Gordon-Levitt galleries?)

So to inspire, motivate, and help you in the workplace, here is your daily motivation:

This puppy loves you.

This puppy wants you to dream big.

This puppy is teaching you to be tenacious.

This puppy inspires you to keep the things you love close to you.

This puppy is learning from the mistakes of his past and applying what he learned to the future.

This puppy delights in life. Delight with him

This puppy gets you.

This is Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He my boyfriend. He wants you to have a good day.

    I don’t care if it’s not on topic, but can someone on the crew beat it into Joe’s brain that he sounds as stupid as George W Bush when he says “nucular”? It’s “nuclear” so stop butchering the English language. It’s not that fucking hard. OH, LOOK, DIS IZ NOOKULAAAAR! Only retards say nucular.
