CNN has advice for the majority of Americans: fall in love with your job even when you don’t like it. The secret is in reframing to find “control over our lives, positive daily connections, and joy and meaning in how we spend our waking time . . . .”
David G. Allan writes (excerpt):
[Amy] Wrzesniewski and [Jane E.] Dutton’s research focused on three main factors of deeper workplace satisfaction that are within your sphere of influence: 1) Refining your job to add parts you like and remove parts you don’t. 2) Building better relationships with your colleagues. 3) Reframing your job to add meaning and purpose.
