Do you remember having summers off?
I was talking with friends about summer camp and how much fun it was to play at our neighborhood pool and run around with friends. Being off of school gave us that needed break from studying and responsibility.
If only we all had the summer off from work!
I’m pretty sure that isn’t going to happen for most of us, so I was thinking about the next best thing.
What if we changed the way we looked at things to create more Joy at work?
These past few months have been full and uncertain. As I talk to clients, I hear more and more about the desire to find joy in work.
It seems many people are struggling with increased workloads, ever-changing priorities and a do-more-with-less mentality.
A WOW is something that makes you feel satisfied, energized productive. AKA - engaged!
This month’s WOW tip is to Spread Appreciation!
The cool thing about appreciation is that it’s a WOW for the giver and the receiver. Each time you appreciate someone that you work with, you get to experience the good feeling that comes with saying “thank you.”
When you’re on the receiving end and someone appreciates you, then you get to “feel the love” and understand the value of the work that you do.
It’s that simple. Start to spread appreciation to your peers, your boss, your family and friends. This WOW is a great way to lighten up and enjoy the people that you spend time with.
