A simple way to focus on the positive at work

Any job has good and bad things to it. Any job. Yours too. Maybe you kinda like your co-workers, you’re good at what you do and the food rocks – but on the other hand the commute is deadly and your boss is a bit of a jerk.

Here’s the point: Even though all jobs contain good and bad elements, most people over focus on the bad things. In this 4-minute video I talk about why that is and what you can do about it. Click above to watch it.

This is the first video in a series of five that we did for Danish enzyme producer Novozymes. They are already a great workplace, and as part of a campaign called “It’s Great to be a Zymer” wanted a simple, fun way to communicate the basic concepts of happiness at work to their employees in Denmark, China, USA and Brazil. So they hired us to do these videos, which their employees can access on the intranet. They have very kindly allowed us to share the videos with a wider audience.

  1. You couldn’t be more correct. Focusing on the negative aspects only make them seem worse. Understanding that there will always be good and bad parts in any career is required to maintain a good overall attitude.
