55 Reasons to Subscribe to Work Happy Now

You should never have to struggle to enjoy a job because there are so many tools that you can apply. It just takes a little practice, emotional intelligence, and some friends to make it happen. Work Happy Now is all about “knowing yourself.” When you know what you want from your job, you can collaborate with the community at WHN to support and encourage your work happiness.

I’ve made a list of 55 reasons to join the Work Happy Now community through email or your RSS reader*. One of these 55 reasons will compel you to join up and start working happier right now. If not, then maybe you just aren’t ready for all this interesting content. 

* RSS stands for Rich Site Summary. Think of it as a radio signal – you just tune in and it’s sent to your reader. My favorite is Google Reader. All you need is a Google account and you can get a feed from your favorite newspaper or blog (Work Happy Now) sent to your reader. The best part is you pick the news you want to follow.

If you’ve made it this far I’ve probably convinced you to sign up via RSS or Email. Hey, you can always unsubscribe, it’s no big deal.

I understand that some people are not ready to enjoy their job. I struggled to enjoy work for many years because I was afraid to try really hard (afraid of failure) and I wanted to start my own company. Why give someone else all my hard work? What I realized is that work is so much more than just your output. It’s about creating a stronger happier you. The more you can learn from your co-workers, managers, customers, and vendors, the more likely that you will be happy.

This is your journey and we’re not going to do the work for you. It’s up to you to make your job so enjoyable that it doesn’t feel like work.
