The average person spends more time doing work than any other activity. And yet most of us aren’t truly happy with the work we’re doing. That’s a problem.
And now we know, thanks to this infographic from noomi.com, what might be the root cause of that problem. For years, we’ve been taught that we must work hard and get good results to be happy… that happiness is derived from professional success.
But what if it was the other way around? What if happiness leads to career success? What if you knew that those of us were happier to begin with – regardless of professional success so far – tend to get hired first, have more job satisfaction, and perform better on the job?
Would that change our perspective on what it takes to be happy at work?
Take a look at the infographic, which does an excellent job of showing the power of being happy… even before you start your job search!
