Seems somebody read my manifesto on happiness at work at just the right moment:
So now, Iím stuck. Iíve been doing more or less the same work for three years (the last 12 months have been utter torture). I have learnt nothing new; my bosses donít understand what I could potentially do (bad communication on my part) and they donít know what they could give me to do… So, still stuck.
Sick of it all, I decided to take charge. I want a rewarding career and am sick of being a corporate nobody. By chance, I came across this. It has made a world of difference to my attitude. In the end, planning my escape begins with this positive frame of mind: I am responsible for my happiness at work.
Yaaaaaay! I live for feedback like this!

I couldn’t agree more Alex, either with the comment or with your work. Your book has been one of several I’ve read this summer, inspiring me to make some serious life changes. I’m now writing myself – doing something I love – which is arguably the best way to be happy at work! Lycka til and keep up the good work.

I just read your manifesto – absolutely awesome!!! I’m getting ready to re-enter the workforce and I can think of no better game-plan than the one you’ve given. I too, know from past experience how much a job YOU don’t like can affect your life. Even if others love the place, if it doesn’t work for you, it’s time to move on. Happiness is too important to put off.
Well, nuts. I quit my job before I read this, but now I’m gearing up to launch a new career. Or relaunch on old one, as the case may be. At any rate, I decided I needed to research and write my own manifesto and came across this post. Thanks for sharing!
