Happiness at work Is…

How Do you know when you’re happy?  Are some people better at happiness?  One of the popular songs is “Happy” by Pharrell.  I saw him sing with a denied contestant on the Voice and it got me to thinking…How often do we ask ourselves if we’re really happy?  Better yet, how often do you get asked that question? Almost never.  I’m a coach I’m supposed to ask the tough questions!  I ask that question, but maybe not often enough…I’ve recently talked with 3 career changers in transition and all are excited about being entrepreneurs!  Why? “Work no longer felt right.”  I took an early retirement buyout & got out of my J-O-B!” ” Just knew there had to be something more”…And I know, based on my 25+ years in Career Development/Life Transitions fields, there are at least dozens more thinking similar thoughts.  So, who’s happy?  Career people?  Entrepreneurs?  What do you think?  Some of this is from my ebook, “Turning Midlife Into The RIGHT Life!  Here are 5 Ways to check your level of happiness at work  & some questions to consider::

1  .Are you constantly checking time but truly have no place to get to..Watching time go by is classic-“this is a waste of time” behavior as well as waiting for the day to be over!

2.  If your work has meaning or do you feel like you’re just “pushing papers?” One of the top 5 reasons to unhappiness at work is feeling that their hard work doesn’t make a difference–they’re just a cog in the wheel!

3. Are your ideas/work appreciated? Remember, people want appreciation in different ways and it isn’t always money.  Could be as simple as saying, “Good Job” sincerely…IF it is deserving-praising for praising’s sake will ring hollow. an afternoon off, having them run the meeting, a cup of coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts, Starbucks or “Tim Hortons”, (for my Canadian readers a certificate for dinner out, and of course, a salary boost.

4. Do you feel valuable to the company/team?  Feeling valued for your contribution is often a major cause for many to leave to become entrepreneurs.

5.  Do you stay late, take work home or answer emails, texts or other methods of communication after working hours? Your health, family and your company suffers.

These are pulled from one of eight questionnaires in my ebook.   These questions were inspired by “Is This Job Salvageable?” questionnaire.
