Joy in the Workplace is a PracticeDec 07, 2020
Written by Roxanne Brown
Rather than a destination, Joy at Work is a practice.
While most people like the idea of growing joy for themselves, they often have only a vague notion of what that means to them. Tuning into what joy at work means to you is a good first step. Here are some thoughts to help you tune in...
For the next week, notice what you experience joy at work:
When do you feel most satisfied with your work? What’s happening?
When do you feel joy in your interactions with colleagues? What’s happening?
When do you feel most motivated and inspired? What’s happening?
When do you laugh at work? Why?
When do you lose yourself in your work?
What small thing could you start or stop doing that would bring you joy?
Imagining it’s six months from now and you were successful in making that small change, what would be happening that would make it all worth it?
