How to love your work

Later I’ll show you how to do your job well. However, doing a job well is not the same as being happy doing the job. It’s not the whole picture.

You can be completing your work tasks tremendously well, but still not be happy and loving your work.

In his book "People Glue" Ian Hutchinson studied what makes people happy at work. He found that what makes us happy at work is a mix of 4 things:

• Personal relationships
• Work relationships
• Financial well being
• Meaningfulness

As each of us is unique, the importance of each of these 4 things will be different for each of us.
But to achieve enduring happiness at work you need to be attending to all of these things, as any one of them has the ability to cause work unhappiness.
