I’d really like to know what makes you happy at work?
What does it take? What do you do? What is it that makes your workday better? Please write a comment to this post.
I’m looking for inspiration for the Happy At Work Book which, incidentally, will be finished soon. I’ll write the last chapter this week or next week at the latest and I only started writing it a month ago. Sometimes I scare myself :o)

Succes in my projects make me happy. Knowing I do something well can make me high too. And good ole fun & party with my co-workers goes a long way as well.
Definetly success in projects!
Here are some other things:
* Making other people smile. There’s a lot of ways to do this, of course… Telling someone that they’re doing good work works sometimes, but it doesn’t have to be work related. And it should definetly come natural, and not be forced.
* Helping people with their problems.
* Having lunch in the park with my colleagues.
* Looking forward to working out after work. Ok, so it isn’t an activity _at_ work, but it definetly makes me happier at work to know I’m going to do something fun when I’m done.
* Reading this blog ;)
Thanks Emme and thanks Stressedmanager – I’m blushing here :o)

Exactly – we want some serious happiness :o)
