Often I find myself chasing “success” in order to find happiness with my work. Even though I know that the pursuing success or fulfillment in work does not lead to happiness. With that frame of mind happiness will always be an elusive goal. I’ll be happy when… I land that client, hit this milestone, get that recognition.
As I am preparing for my session at Circles Conference, Shawn Anchor’s TED talk on The Happy Secret to Better Work is a perfect reminder to reframe my around thinking around happiness and success. It’s not our reality that shapes us, but the lens through which we view our reality.
