Do you measure happiness…really?

I think it’s time for a moment of truth. Do you measure happiness?

Do you think that your company’s success is relevant to happy leaders, co-workers and happy customers?

What if we could count happiness as a factor of success and added value in a company, equally important as revenue.

That happiness would be added as a measure of wellbeing. Would happiness and satisfaction then be more important than it is today?

“Be happy, have fun and enjoy” would be posted on the company employee board, and each week we would actually talk about the weeks targeted goals of happiness. Are we happy, do we enjoy and have pleasure doing what we do? Can we make next week even better? What makes life and work fun? What is happiness to each one of us? I’m sure that we do have different stories and perceptions.

Does your company run by people with taste, passion and opinions? Do you care?

Do you measure happiness… really? There are some that do.

“Happiness is a state of mind or feeling characterized by contentment, love, satisfaction, pleasure, or joy.”

Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

“Happiness comes when your work and words are of benefit to yourself and others.”

– Buddha

“If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy, and inspires your hopes.”

– Andrew Carnegie

“Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

– Abraham Lincoln

One thought on “Do you measure happiness…really?

  1. The main reason I started my business was to be able to live and work in a different way in which our welth is measured by the meaning of our actions and by the way we encounter and interact with the people around us. You are so very right that happiness and wellbeing are the real values that count. We are rich in having food and shelter everyday of our lives. We are able to be generous to others and literally care and share.
    Nothing can top that!
