I read his post celebrating 10 years of blogging (a feat I hope to accomplish someday), in which he highlighted his 10 most popular posts.
Near the top of the list was his post Top 10 Signs You’re Unhappy at Work. Though I agree with everything in his post, it got me thinking about the signs you’re happy at work. In the usual frustrations that come from working with other human beings, sometimes it’s easy to miss these signs that we really do love what do every day.
1. You have friends at work. We simply want to work with and for people we like and respect.
2. You enjoy helping your colleagues. You’re as invested in their success as in your own.
3. You’re shocked that it’s already 4 in the afternoon. The days fly by because you’re engaged in and enjoy what you’re doing.
4. You hate it when you’re sick because people are counting on you. You don’t want to let anyone down, though you know others are more than happy to fill in for you while you recover.
