Friday links

Happy cupHere are a few great recent links about happiness at work. And a silly one.

I almost destroyed a life today. “I wasn’t raised to be such an arrogant, uncompassionate son of a bitch but I somehow managed to get there.”

Confesstions of a (reformed) bad boss. “When I was in my 30s, and an up-and-coming executive, I took pride in the fact that I would travel to New York on a flight at seven, [fly] back at 11 and be back in the office at seven. The fact that someone had children to take to school, I just thought: Well, get organized, man!???

Motivation = celebration + appreciation. “If you can find a way to appreciate yourself for what you’ve already accomplished, and to celebrate your previous successes, you will find you are ‘magically’ motivated to accomplish more.”

Bad english from around the world. Including ” Order your summers suit. Because is big rush we will execute customers in strict rotation” from a Rhodes tailor and “Drop your trousers here for best results” from a Bangkok dry cleaners.

Enjoy, and have a grrrrreat weekend :o)

  1. Thanks, IZ – and I agree many people seem to spend too much of their time and energy at work, to the detriment of their family lives.

    There’s a “national balance week” coming up in Denmark, which I’m helping to organize, that will focus precisely on this.
