you may have learned in the “about me” that my overall goal is in the pursuit of happiness in the workplace. it stems from a personal mission – if I’m going to spend more waking hours in the office than with my loved ones, I may as well be enjoying it.
you could blame all of it on the US being the most overworked developed nation, but I can only assume there are multiple contributing factors.
so here’s the plan:
- on the individual level, I’m hunting to discover why we are unhappy, and why not.
- on the business development level, I want to find out if happier workers drive better business results.
- on the global level, I want to know if there are countries we can learn from (and then maybe move there.)
with my learnings, I’ll be trying to post tips and plans, the “how can I do it too!” part of this brain exercise.
so. I’m just starting out and if you have ideas, you just me know.
