These are some thoughts of mine in response to an idea from Miya Tokumitsu, revisited in the Guardian newspaper after originally appearing in Jacobin magazine. Needless to say I don’t share the view that only the privileged are equipped to enjoy their work.
Having looked at the discussion how would you answer these questions:
- How important is your work compared to your family or social life?
- How happy does it make you feel?
- Do you have a clear goal about what you want to happen within your life this year?
- What will you feel like when you accomplish your goal?
Asking yourself these, hard, questions will help you decide what steps you will take to enjoy your work and social life in 2014. Get in touch to discuss how I can help with that strategy.
