A modern recipe for happiness

Have you ever considered how do you spend your time?

You work, sleep and do other things in your spare time.
Many people spend actually more time at work than sleeping, leaving few hours for spare timeThis prevalence of working hours has increased so much in the past decades, that it has lead to the introduction of the work-life balance concept.
Since working hours account for most of your time, if you want to be happy in life you should also enjoy your career.

In this blog I would like to discuss how to increase the chances of landing a job you can really enjoy. 
It is fundamental that you take the time to plan your career. If you don't do it, no one else will do it for you.

Think about your Career as a recipe. Each ingredient is simple but when you mix them together in the proper way, you end up with something great. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Career ingredients

Make no mistake: I personally believe and strive for success in both career and private life. One shouldn't exclude the other. But while I'm confident that everyone of us attempts to make well pondered decisions about life, the same often does not hold true for the work related matters. Think about your current job. Have you strategically looked for it or is it the result of a series of coincidences, that could have eventually worked out in a completely different way?

It's up to you how you will utilize this information.
I like to use the term enjoy because instead of picturing my career as a stair-climbing for money and power, I live it as a perfect mix of fun and satisfaction. A job, that gets you every day out of the bed with a smile and that never makes you think Thank God it's Friday. 

Are you ready to enjoy your career?
