Monday Tip: Thank the happy

The Chief Happiness Officer's monday tipsYour mission this monday has three steps. Step 1: make a list of three happy people at work. Three people (or two or four or five) who are:

  • Generally happy and cheerful
  • Spread a good mood around them by being happy
  • Simply good to have around

It can be a co-worker, your boss, someone from another department, the receptionist… or even a customer or the FedEx guy.

Step 2: Think about what it means to have these happy people around. What does it do for you and others? What do you enjoy about it? How do they improve the workplace and your working day?

Step 3: Find a way to thank them. Be specific based on what you found in step 2 and let them know exactly what their positive attitude does for you and others.

You see, naturally happy people are a huge boon to any organization, but often they don’t know how much it means to others that they are so happy. So make sure to let them know! Also, it’s just too easy to always bitch about the negative people who’re always in a bad mood and infect others with that. Instead, make a point of remembering how many nice people are also around you!
