Being happy at work is still a relatively new idea

If you have made it to the end of the week and feeling a bit crud, please take some consolation in knowing that you are not alone.

We get a front-row seat to view the lives of a teeny-tiny group of people on this planet who have it all, and, at the same time are being constantly bombarded by industries providing all types of promises that we can and should have that life too…now!
It becomes really easy to forget, the very idea that work will make us happy is a very new idea in human history.

That doesn’t mean you should give up, water down your goals, or choose not to continue searching.
But this Friday afternoon, allow yourself a bit of love, knowing that the world we find ourselves in isn’t as easy to navigate as the influencer or self-help book author tells us.

Keep learning, thinking, testing, reflecting and adjusting, to build a way forward based on your own requirements and at your own pace, without judgment and benchmarks set by industries who need you unhappy to be profitable.
