The author of this profoundly simple little book has a few wise words to say on the subject of being happier at work, based on the realization that happiness is our true job. Find out how to be happier at work–and in our lives–here.
As the workday nears, and as it begins to unfold, watch it gently and without suspicion. Take each task as it comes, and donít peer over it to the next task. Do that task impeccably, but donít expect acknowledgment. In fact, expect nothing at all from the job or from anyone in the workplace. Approached in this way, work can be happy, because happiness remains within our control.
Keep in mind that gentle attention to each task can be very grounding to the mind. Happiness is our true job, and happiness is to be found in the present moment.
