What do you like about your job?

Sometimes it seems all we can see are the things we don’t like about work: the boss, a co-worker or two, the decisions made at higher levels, the economy forcing hiring freezes, etc. Stop. Find what you like. What do you enjoy doing? What do you look forward to? What makes you lose track of time? When do you notice yourself getting enthusiastic? Find both tasks and people you like. Tell other people how much you enjoy them. Tell your boss about the tasks you most enjoy. You never know when you might find a way to trade-off the tasks you don’t like as much to someone else so that you can do more of what gives you energy. Be grateful for these things and think about them daily to put yourself in a positive frame of mind.
