60 Simple Ways to Stay Engaged and Be Successful
By Jim Donovan, author of Handbook to a Happier Life
Even in a challenging economy, more and more workers report dissatisfaction with their work life and frustration that they aren’t contributing more to the world and feeling better about doing it. In recent years numerous studies about workplace happiness and fulfillment report dismal numbers when it comes to employee satisfaction. A 2012 Gallup poll reported employee disengagement in U.S. companies to be as high as 70 percent, costing businesses more than $550 billion a year in lost productivity.
Jim Donovan, a small business owner, consultant, and speaker, has offered workplace advice to employers and employees for 25 years. He considers himself a “happiness expert” because he has helped thousands of workers discover ways to make their work more fulfilling and enjoyable without changing jobs or even getting a raise. In the tradition of such inspirational writers as Richard Carlson, Jim offers 60 simple tips that will help anyone discover the reasons they took the job in the first place and increase their levels of productivity and fulfillment.
Each of the short chapters in this book offers a pithy “instruction” — some simple, some more complicated — such as “break your patterns”; “become a value finder”; “focus on what is working”; “don’t gossip”; and “arrive at work early.” The chapter goes on to explain the reasons behind these attitude and behavior adjustments and examples from the workplace of how these small changes can lead to big changes. According to Jim, being happy at work (or anywhere) requires us to take control over our thoughts and emotions, begin to define what it is we want, and follow some time-tested principles for a more successful life. Each entry suggests ways workers can take charge of their feelings and emotions and develop strategies to become more engaged, fulfilled, and productive both at work and in their personal lives.
Throughout Happy @ Work readers will learn simple, practical, easily implemented ideas and techniques to feel better about themselves and their work. These are actionable ideas that can help anyone advance their career and create their most amazing life. Jim Donovan speaks regularly to employees and executives at small business and large corporations. He is a frequent media guest and expert source on personal development, business success, and the spiritual laws that develop both. He lives in Bucks County, PA. His website is www.JimDonovan.com.
