Kindle Free Pick of the Week: Happier At Work: How to Love the Job You Already Have

Happier at Work!

You can love the job you currently have.

Discover the five steps you can take to bring you happiness in the job you have

Figure out how to apply these five steps to your own situation to increase your happiness at work

Your Fears
•I could spend pages describing all the reasons people give me of why they should stay in their current job.
•Do any of these sounds familiar?
•I can’t afford to leave a well-paid job
•I won’t find another job
•I won’t find another job as well-paid/convenient/close to home
•I don’t have the right qualifications to do what I really want to do
•I’m too old/young
•I’m the wrong race/gender
•I need the experience
•It’s a small industry – leaving will damage my reputation
•I don’t want ‘them’ to win

These thoughts can feel overwhelming and all too real. They may be keeping you stuck in a job that leaves you tired, sick, frustrated and miserable. They keep you where you are.

There’s a better reason to stay.

Mounting research shows that happiness is not a destination or something you are born with. It is a product of the effort you put into it.

Company Mistakenly Fires All 1,300 Employees

A British company sent and email to all 1,300 employees lettign them kknow that they were fired, when the email was intended for only one worker.

Aviva Investors' human resources department realized its mistake and recalled the offending message 25 minutes later and soon afterwards sent out another email apologizing to staff for the error.

An email which was intended for a member of staff who was leaving today was accidentally sent to all Aviva Investors staff worldwide, a company spokesperson stated.

"People were pretty quickly aware of the fact that this was a mistake ... I don't believe any of our staff would have seen it really as anything other than the mistake that it was," the spokesperson added.

The email was a standard message sent to people leaving the company, covering things such as handing back company equipment and confidentiality rules.

It was reported weeks ago that Aviva would shed about 160 jobs in a cost-cutting move.
