What on this earth?Early next year I will be doing a presentation on Humor in the Workplace. Clearly there are many positive side effects of having a happy work environment, not the least of which is greater productivity. The research is in and having fun in the workplace wins! Where would you rather work, in a place that is full of life and fun or a place that is just lifeless?
Preparing for this presentation I came across some short videos of people on the street being asked the question: “What makes you happy?” So, armed with a Flip Video Camera I spent two days walking around the client’s building asking that question. 
As you might guess there was a great variety to the answers, including chocolate, vacation days, dogs, sunshine, kittens, and family.     The response, though, to being asked “What makes you happy?” was the same. It always brought a smile to their faces. Priceless!
So, what makes you happy? How can you bring more of that into your life? Better yet, how can you combine those things that bring you joy with your work to create a life?
“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
