Alexander Kjerulf: Happiness at Work

Call To Action: Say Good Morning. Make eye contact. Say something extra. Touch. And, of course, SMILE. 

Kjerulf says that happiness at work is different from job satisfaction. Happiness at work requires 2 things:
1. Results: You are good at you do and your work is meaningful to you.
2. Relationships: You like the people you work with/for, they like you back.

Anyone can be happy at work and we should, not all the time but most of the time. Happy enough that when we get home, we look forward to going back to work the next day. Work is only 2nd to sleep in how much time we spend.

We value our work when we are made to feel needed.
