Getting back to work in this new year, everyone had been continually greeting each other with the saying, “HAPPY New Year!” As we approach our last days of January, is it still OK to keep repeating this over and over? What does it really mean anyway?
As we all venture into this new year of 2013, we all should remain positive and strive to make 2013 the best year yet! Sounds corny, but if we listen to those three little words our colleagues and friends are saying, they actually do have a point.
This is a tough business, with demanding clients, financial pressures and long hours. We can often feel overwhelmed by the pressures from clients. However, how we each react to each of these stressful client situations is critical. Staying positive or “happy” can breed motivation, creativity and productivity. We are in the business of making clients happy—it is critical for us to produce high-quality work that drives our clients’ business. I believe that if we are happy with our work and ourselves, we will achieve our goal of making our clients happy and successful.
Dale Carnegie once said, “Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get.”
I say we all strive to have success this year, and most of all be happy while doing it!
