How to Find Your Happy Place Meet Up

Work. Everyone has to do it. Well, almost everyone. Gajillionaires don’t need to so this session is not for any gajillionaires. But work is a necessity for the rest of us working stiffs. Focus too little on it and you are in an endless cycle of living paycheck to paycheck. Focus too much on it and you turn into a misanthropic jerk no matter what your rank is on the corporate ladder. Is there a way to stay happy while still hating that you have to work? Yes. Is it a myth that you have to love what you do in order to be happy at work? Yes. Can you be a grumpy cat and still be happy? Definitely, yes. This session is about finding that balance between work and happiness. It does exist. Sometimes they're perfectly aligned and more often than not you may have to happily embrace unhappiness to get there. Happiness is a spectrum. This meetup will use shared stories to help you find your place on that spectrum, manage misery with "little absurdities" and use tools to shift to a new happy place.
