Back in January I created a post featuring these questions about your workplace happiness. In particular I asked you to focus on these points:
- 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?

Simply thinking about what you want won’t achieve much. It is action which gets you flowing smoothly towards that outcome. If you have 20 minutes here is an interesting TED talk by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi on the concept of Flow
