Reader Questionnaire 2009, Quick Tip and Mini-Contest

As this site grows, I want you to be a part of its maturation. Without you, there is only me shouting about work happiness into an empty room. That's no fun.

So I've created a short questionnaire in order to help me take Work Happy Now to the next level.

One quick tip to bring happiness into your work place: Bring your favorite mug or glass in from home for one week. Notice how it makes you feel.

  • Does it feel weird?
  • Do you like it?
  • How is it keeping you happy or throwing off your normal routine?

When I tried taking my favorite mug into work, it brought a calm feeling over me during that time. I realized that I associated that mug with a relaxed state. I brought it in on a Wednesday and took it home that Friday.

I couldn't be without my favorite mug over the weekend.

Too much normalcy in the work place isn't good either. If we get too used to our routine then any little thing can throw us off course and create upsetting feelings. By bringing your favorite mug or glass in to work you are throwing yourself off your normal routine, and as a result you will be a little more prepared for change. Because change will come. It's not a matter of "if," but "when."

*Contest*

Send me a picture of you with your favorite (mug or glass) at work to karl (AT) workhappynow (DOT) com. If I get enough of them, I will pick a winner and post it on this blog. The winner will get the limited edition book "The Word of Mouth Manual II" by Dave Balter of Bzzagent.

I'll pay for shipping too. 🙂

Thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to make this site even better.

You are awesome!
