  1. 1. Reclaim Your Joy For Living And Working 5 Tips For Being Happy at Work
  2. 2. Greet Each Day With A Sense Of Purpose This is the choice you have every day.You can be, in the words of George Bernard Shaw, “a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy,” or you can be an eagle soaring effortlessly in the sun.
  3. 3. Cultivate Extreme Resilience Imagine you’re a civil engineer called to build a road through difficult terrain. You notice loose shale, a granite mountain that lies squarely in the way of your proposed road, marshy ground and so on. You don’t rail against any of those obstacles. They are simply the constraints that you have to accommodate. The challenge itself is exhilarating!
  4. 4. Drop The Useless Baggage Are there troublesome people at work? The next time you work with one, forget the history. Don’t expect that the interaction will be unpleasant. Expect that it will be delightful, and if it is not, then let it go. Don’t carry it to the next time you have to work together.
  5. 5. Step Outside Your Me-Centered Worldview There is one way in which every single person is similar to you. Everyone is desperately seeking happiness. If you’re conscious that everyone has the same desire, then you find yourself gravitating toward being of service instead of being demanding.
  6. 6. Eschew Multitasking: Try Mindfulness Instead One way people try to cope with information overload is by multitasking. You probably do it too, and you may even consider it a strength. Disabuse yourself of this idea. Multitasking simply means that you do many things badly and take much more time at it.
