  • 5 pillars of workplace happiness: meaning, engagement, accomplishment, relationships, positive emotion #
  • Meaning: Does your work have purpose? Does your labor lead to benefits for others? Even mundane jobs can have a sense of meaning & purpose. #
  • Look for the meaning in your job. It’s typically there, you just might not see it. #
  • Engagement: Are you immersed in your job? time is irrelevant, work is natural, pleasant, fulfilling? #
  • Search for jobs and tasks that use your talents and those that you find engage you. #
  • Accomplishment: Do you achieve goals in your career? This includes being recognized for your contributions, & your mastery at your job. #
  • Set goals that you find meaningful. Celebrate (and reward yourself) for achieving those goals and for career accomplishments. #
  • Relationships: Do you have quality relationships with others at work? Stress & dissatisfaction at work is mainly caused by bad relationships #
  • Work hard to develop good relationships on the job. Put energy into those relationships, in the same way that you would in a friendship #
  • Positive Emotion: Are you upbeat & optimistic? Positive emotions & an optimistic outlook are key drivers of workplace (&life) happiness #
  • Try to focus on the positives. Be optimistic. Wear a smile – this will make you happy & improve the moods of those around you #

  • RT @joe_hill I don’t know why, but when I read novels, I want to imagine the past, and when I see movies, I want to look at the future. #
  • Officially on vacation, and starting it with a treat (@ Starbucks) http://4sq.com/m5ldZB#
