I recently worked with a client who was feeling overwhelmed in his work. He came to me looking dishevelled, stressed and carrying a notebook with lots of post-it notes hanging out of it. His work involved a mix of working in the office and being out on a water treatment site. He looked exhausted and like he had a lot on his mind.
I recently flew on a Virgin flight from Brisbane to Canberra to deliver a Science of Achieving Your Potential program and I got thinking about authentic happiness at work. So, on my way to the airport I decided to count the amount of smiles I got between walking in the door of the terminal and arriving at the hire car at the other end.
I recently delivered a keynote at a conference with over 800 delegates in attendance. I had submitted my presentation two weeks early as they needed to brand the slides themselves. I had rehearsed and rehearsed and rehearsed. I was completely pumped and looking forward to it.
