There are a lot of articles out there, inspiring us and teaching us to be appreciative of being alive, being loved and being healthy. What I would like to do today being the 1st of February is to divert away from being appreciative focusing on life itself and concentrate on your work life. I know your job is not everything to you, however, you spend a quarter of your day at work, isn’t that enough to make you want to make that quarter better?
Let me start first, you can join in and share what your happiness in a workplace at the comments below.
Happiness in a workplace is…
When I get appreciated of the little things I do at work
When I receive a ‘Good Job!’ email from my boss
When my colleague remembers that I drink tea not coffee
When I get to work early enough for breakfast with my coworkers
When I solve a particularly difficult problem and I owned the rights to punch the air with my fist and yell ‘Yeah!”
When I see someone gets praised publicly in front of others
When my peers approach me to pick my brain for ideas
When my ideas turned from a mere thought process to a successful launch
When my team volunteer to stay back at work to help me complete my work
When I use facts and figures to shut the management’s mouth (major ego booster!!)
When everyone said it’s impossible to reach that target and we did
When every one of my team turns up for company’s outing because we want to
When I enjoy my colleagues’ company so much they become my friends off work
When I completed a huge and difficult project on time and beyond management’s expectations
When customers asked to speak to the manager (me) to compliment my teammates
When customers called in and proposition me to work for them (another major ego booster!! Haha!)
When my boss says he has faith in me in conquering a seemly impossible situation and I proved him right
When I tried to reason out and my boss says ‘Shut up and do whatever you want because I trust you.’
When someone comes up to me and give me a big hug for inspiring him or her
When my team cried as I told them I’m relocating
When someone I don’t know comes up to me and said he or she has heard of my good work and gave me a thumbs up
I know I’m not in the corporate world and as I recalled these happy instances, I smile. What about you? What makes you smile in your workplace? What is happiness in the workplace for you? Share with us in the below comments.
