When you have great satisfaction developing your work and creativity, work is no longer just something you do to pay the bills. It’s an important part of your happiness. I mean, can you truly be happy in life if you’re not happy at work?
Obviously, it’s in the best interest of your company for you to be happy at work. I think happy workers are less stressed, try harder and are more productive at the end of the day.
But what is happiness? Receiving a raise & company trips to tropical locals are all fabulous, but let’s not forget that each individual is really responsible for their own happiness.
No matter the little extras you might be offered. In the end, happiness in your professional life basically comes from doing what you love or succeeding in coming to love what you do.
