Positivity Breeds Successful Work

How to Get Excited About Work: 4 Tips for Positivity

10-Aug 2018

We know you spend a lot of time at your office. Over 55+ hours a week; more often than not, spending more time with your colleagues than you do with your own family and friends. And that's exactly why you need to feel satisfied in your job and comfortable with your co-workers.

A recent study* found that only 47.7% of people are satisfied with their jobs. So how do we change this? First, get started on a client work management platform that supports your work and saves you time. If you haven’t yet, you can sign up for a free trial of Accelo today.  

According to Dan Buettner, author of The Blue Zones of Happiness: Lessons From the World’s Happiest People, “The most powerful thing you can do to add healthy years is to curate your immediate social network.”

“Happiness isn’t something that just happens to you. Everyone has the power to make small changes in our behavior, our surroundings, and our relationships that can help set us on course for a happier life.”

How does this relate to work? Let me explain. When working in an office, we’re spending the majority of our time interacting with co-workers. But rather than feeding off of negativity, be a source of positivity and let it permeate your work. Even with something small like an email or a meeting invite, approach the content from a positive place; it’s more powerful than you think. The same way our social networks shape who we are, so do our professional networks.

Here are four ways to be happier at work:

  1. Approach the day with optimism. Look at your schedule: find time to work on a project you’re passionate about.

  2. Be gentle with yourself. Talk to yourself like you’d talk to a friend and ask your team for help when you need an extra set of eyes. Even better, use a client work management platform that allows for Project Collaborators.

  3. Let go. Do the work, go through the tasks one-by-one, and then turn over the results. When following a project plan and working with dependencies there are stop gaps along the way, so you know you’re on track before completion.

  4. Find and connect with what you’re passionate about, and get back to the work you love. If you are bogged down by administrative tasks, and you’re looking to spend more time doing what you like to do, you’re not alone. That’s why Accelo streamlines processes and manages client work in one place.
