Transcript of Increasing Work Productivity With Happiness

1: Happy people work better with others
Happy people are a lot more fun to be around and consequently have better relations at work. This translates into:

Better teamwork with your colleagues
Better employee relations if you’re a manager
More satisfied customers if you’re in a service job
Improved sales if you’re a sales person
2: Happy people are more creative
If your productivity depends on being able to come up with new ideas, you need to be happy at work.

If people are in a good mood on a given day, they’re more likely to have creative ideas that day, as well as the next day, even if we take into account their mood that next day.
3: Happy people fix problems instead of complaining about them
When you don’t like your job, every molehill looks like a mountain. It becomes difficult to fix any problem without agonizing over it or complaining about it first. When you’re happy at work and you run into a snafu – you just fix it.
4: Happy people are more efficient
Happy people have more energy and are therefore more efficient at everything they do.
5: Happy people are more optimistic
Happy people have a more positive, optimistic outlook, and as research shows, optimists are way more successful and productive.
As the saying goes “Whether you believe you can or believe you can’t, you’re probably right”.
6: Happy people are more motivated
Low motivation means low productivity, and the only sustainable, reliable way to be motivated at work is to be happy and like what you do.
7: Happy people learn faster
When you’re happy and relaxed, you’re much more open to learning new things at work and thereby increasing your productivity.
8: Happy people worry less about making mistakes – and consequently make fewer mistakes
When you’re happy at work the occasional mistake doesn’t bother you much. You pick yourself up, learn from it and move on. You also don’t mind admitting to others that you screwed up – you simply take responsibility, apologize and fix it. This relaxed attitude means that less mistakes are made, and that you’re more likely to learn from them.
9: Happy people make better decisions
Unhappy people operate in permanent crisis mode.
Their focus narrows, they lose sight of the big picture, their survival instincts kick in and they’re more likely to make short-term, here-and-now choices.
Conversely, happy people make better, more informed decisions and are better able to prioritize their work.
1: Avoid "Good" and "Bad" labels
When Something bad happens , don't beat yourself up.
Instead,when you make an error be aware of it without passing judgement.

"Do what you have to do , but don't surrender your calmness and sense of peace"
2: Practice "Extreme Resilience"
"Extreme resilience" is the ability to recover fast from adversity.
"You spend much time in needless fruitless self-recrimination and blaming others"
"You go on pointless guilt trips and make excuses that you know are fatuous"
If you are resilient , you recover and go on to do great things.
10 : Happy people get sick less often
Getting sick is a productivity killer and if you don’t like your job you’re more prone to contract a long list of diseases including ulcers, cancer and diabetes.
You’re also more prone to workplace stress and burnout.
5: Find Passion in you , not in your job
Sure, you can fantasize about a dream job that pays you well and allows you to do some kind of social good ,with brilliant and likable colleagues and still be in time for dinner.
However, the warning is against searching for the perfect position , or even believing that it exists. Instead , change how you think about your current situation.
6: Picture yourself 10 years ago and 10 years from now
Just as most problems that kept you awake ten years ago have disappeared, much of what troubles you today will also vanish. Realizing this truth will help you gain perspective.
3: Let go of grudges
A key of being happy at work is to let go of grudges " consciously drop the past " .

It's Hard ,but with practice you will get the hang of it.
8: Invest in the process, not the outcome
Outcomes are totally beyond your control
You'll set yourself up for disappointment if you focus too much on what you hope to achieve rather than of how you plan to get there.
9: Think about other people
Even in the corporate world ,where so much work is every man for himself .
Challenging the assumption that you need to be a dog-eat-dog person to survive in a corporate environment.
10: Swap multitasking for mindfulness
Multitasking gets in the way of happiness.
"Multitasking simply means that you do many things badly and take much more time at it" .
Turn off any electronic gadgets that can be a distraction.
With practice, you will be able to accomplish much more and with less effort.
4: Don't waste time being jealous
When you are jealous you are saying that the universe is limited and there's not enough success in it for me.

Instead , be happy because whatever happened to someone else will happen to you in your current job or at another company.
7: Banish the "If/Then" model of happiness
Many of us rely on a flawed "if/then" model for happiness.
If I become CEO,then I'll be happy.
If I Make a Six-Figure salary , then I will be happy.
"There is nothing that you have to get , do or be in order to be happy "
Thank you!!
