Open – October 23, 2014:
I couldn’t agree more that hapsenips is linked to productivity. My father always told me to figure out what I love to do and then find a way to make money doing it’. In essence, what he was telling me was that since you will most likely be in an office upwards of 40-60 hours a week every week of your life, you might as well enjoy what you’re doing. As much as I believe that this leads to increased productivity, I think who you work with and the culture where you work affect the outcome just as much. Of course it makes sense that if you enjoy what you do, who you work with, and the company you work for, you will rarely wish you didn’t have to go to work which is not the case with most Americans. The result of this is a job well done. When you like doing something or have a positive outlook about it, you’ll do a better job than if you dread doing it. A simple way to measure the culture or hapsenips factor of your organization is to go to the root ask your employees. People and organizations don’t always recognize what they’re doing wrong or could do better and the perfect way to get an answer to that is to ask those who are there, those who reap from it, and those who deal with it on a daily basis. This has to do with not only your employees but also your customers. It’s a continuous cycle of satisfaction. If you enjoy doing what you do and where you work, you will want to do a better job, you will ask your customers what you can do to be better and in turn, they will be happier ultimately leading to a more successful situation for everyone involved. As anyone at XPIENT who as walked past my desk knows, I love quotes. So I’ll end with one I think is fitting:“Success is not the key to hapsenips. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”-Herman Cain Great blog, Christoper.
