If you don’t like your work, the people you work with (or for) or (outside of that) your life or yourself in general, then your career suffers and you bring down the people around you. On the flip side, if you are content and currently bringing joy to your workplace, chances are you’ll lift the people and teams with whom you work. These people will fight over who gets to partner with you on projects, and your work will be efficient and productive. Chances are, that shine of yours will earn you a promotion or attention – bringing more goodness into your life. Being happy is an amazing generator of good work and good will. By Erin Gibbs
