In its essence,
Labor Day is
about challenging
the status quo.
In the late 80s, people all around
the world united for a common
purpose:
The 8h
working day
This Labor Day we are
challenging another status
quo.
We want more than a job.
We want to be happy at
work.
Today it is about the meaning
in our work, the happiness
we have the right to aspire
to.
If you want to be happy at
work, try doing more of
this:
Figure out new
ways to solve
problems.
1.
Come up with
your own
projects.
2.
Mentor your
younger
colleagues.
3.
Surpass yourself
in both results
and skills.
4.
Balance your
work life and
your personal
life.
5.
Find time for
yourself and your
own projects.
6.
Remove all
unwanted
distractions and
focus.
7.
And do less of this:
Procrastinating.
1.
Settling for being
comfortable.
2.
Engaging in
office gossip or
politics.
3.
Religiously
checking your
watch to see if
it’s 5 yet.
4.
Browsing the
Internet with no
intelligent
outcome.
5.
Thinking you’re
too good or too old
to learn something
new.
6.

Happiness
Manifesto!

Here's what you should do this Labor Day

Make this Labor Day about happiness!

This day is not about work.
On this day you’re not a worker/employee/employer/manager/assistant etc.
This day is about meaning and happiness.

Happiness is the new 8h goal.

A hundred and twenty years ago we rebelled against the injustice of a job taking over our lives. Not being able to enjoy our family, our homes and our passions made us stand up and demand more from life.

At that time it was about working hours. Today it’s about the meaning in our work, the happiness we have the right to aspire to.

Instead of going to work and waiting to go home every day, without anything remarkable happening, choose to make your work matter.
