Chapter #7 The Power Of WorkLife Happiness

Quote #7 “If you can’t fly, then run, if you can’t run, then walk, if you can’t walk, then crawl, but by all means keep moving.” Martin Luther King Jr.

Followed by my Chapter Introduction:

When Jack was five, one day, he asked me, “What is the meaning of life and the purpose of meaning?” I was flabbergasted and did not have a clue how I was going to answer this, so I asked, “What do you think it is?” Jack responded, “Happiness.” The boy’s a genius, I thought. I asked what made him think that. “I saw it on the Simpsons,” he replied — proving the old adage that wisdom can sometimes be found in the unlikeliest of places.

But what does happiness mean in the world of WorkLives? Of course, there is no one definition but rather a general consensus that little things count and can make a difference. Happiness is linked to motivation, and in WorkLife, people are often happy when they are trying to achieve goals that are difficult but not out of reach and are taking steps to fulfil their aspirations and dreams

As a WorkLife Learning Practitioner and Writer, I know the importance of serving people’s preferred learning style. Some people like the bigger picture — quotes allow that. Other people like more detail — the chapter introductions allow that.

I like the bigger picture, to begin with, then I like detail. So I like both.

What’s your preferred learning style?

Bigger picture, more detail, or both?
