We are 1/12 through 2010 and how much happier are you at work?
February marks the two year anniversary of this blog. My main reason for creating this business was to help other people who feel tired and weary of the grind.
I rarely feel stressed out, trapped and alone at this stage in my career. Instead of continuing to be pushed around I took control of my own work happiness. For the past two years I’ve researched stress, relationships (self, co-workers, and boss), and productivity.
The same conclusions keep coming back. If we want to get our desired results, we need to be happy now. The more we delay our happiness, the more depressed and disconnected we become.
I want businesses to build a work environment that encourages career and personal growth. The only way to get the most amazing results is to allow people to shake their fears.
We all need to believe in who we are and recognize our unlimited potential. This is a process that every organization needs to help with. The more an organization can help their employees reduce their stress, build better relationships, and expand creativity, the happier they will become.
We are not here to live quiet lives of desperation. We are here to make a difference in people’s lives.
I created a questionnaire that will help me help you. 🙂
Please fill it out and let me know what I can do to make your 2010 dreams a reality.
Work Happy Now Questionnaire:
Here is the link to the Work Happy Now Questionnaire. If you have time I will would really appreciate it. If I get over 100 people to fill out the form I will give you my Work Happiness Dance. It's a little embarrassing because I probably dance worse than your grandmother. You know, the one with the bad leg. 😉

I take it your Work Happiness Dance will be a YouTube classic?
It's so true that happiness is now, not a future -- you drive from it.
Hi Karl -- I like that perspective -- that our work really can be an expression of our happiness and sense of fullness, rather than an effort to get those things.
Hi J.D., I hope it doesn't become a YouTube classic. If it would go viral it will not be because everyone is amazed by my crazy good dancing skills.
Hi Chris, I like how you said that. Work is an expression of our happiness and sense of fullness. It's these feelings that we can use to our advantage. Is that how you felt about writing your book?
I just logged onto your survey, and just FYI, the first question says to answer with as many responses as the survey taker wishes, but it only allows the survey taker to pick one.
I'd like to see this Work Happiness dance of yours! Don't worry about how it looks and just have fun with it. My guess is that your loyal readers will be cheering you on and take great joy in seeing you have fun rather than laughing at you.
I think we get too worried in our culture about having to do everything perfectly, so then we get self-conscious and anxious, and we let that get in the way of our happiness and enjoyment in our lives. I've lost count of the number of times I've ended up in perfectionist mode with unrealistic expectations and then lost all enthusiasm for and joy in performing the activity(whether work related or recreational)or I would get frustrated because all of the weird stuff that goes along with self-consciousness also inhibits the ability to learn a new skill. I suspect that once again, compassion, acceptance and equanamity play a huge role in helping us to stay calm, relaxed and content in the present moment.
When I took up belly dancing (after being inspired at a "Dancing Dreamers" shamanic retreat),I approached it from a place of being mindful that it was intended to be fun and it just didn't matter if I didn't "get it" right away or I didn't do things perfectly right away. I treated it as a type of moving meditation and a fun way of getting some exercise and learning something new. Now, seven years later dancing is one those activities that nurtures my spirit and happiness.
Have a great day,
Hi Arlene, Thank you for letting me know. I fixed the questionnaire. Hope you are having a grrrrrreat day.
Start dancing brother. Don't die with any moves left in you. You've got to shake it loose or lose it. Present moment happiness is the answer.
Think the work happy dance will take your blog to the next level:) Happy Tuesday.
Hi Sue, I agree that we try to do everything so perfectly that we lock up. You make a good point. Self-compassion is so important. We aren't superheroes. We mess up. We just have to role with it and keep making smart adjustments.
I love that you took up belly dancing. I bet you can't think of doing much else besides focusing on your stomach.
I'm getting a lot of responses, so it looks like my dance might happen.
Hi Tess, That's what I'm hoping for. 😉
Hi Tom, I'm practicing my moves right after writing this message to you. You should join in. Did you do a happy dance after the Big Link Rally?
Happy Anniversary!!!! Woo-hoo what a milestone!
Going over to fill out that questionnaire now, looking forward to the happy dance 🙂
