TIP OF THE WEEK: This is the time of year when many of my friends and I begin to look at the music festival calendar for upcoming late spring and summer. We love live music. It clears the cobwebs in our heads and gets our mind focused on just that which is in front of us - people doing their passion in the music world. A January '12 article on happiness in the Harvard Business Review pointed out that music is one of the top 4 ways that people get "happy". They referred to the The Economics of Well-Being.
OK, what does all of this have to do with the world of work and career? When we add creativity - whether it's music, dancing, art, cooking, movies, books - into our life to balance work life or job search, we gain exponentially. A new perspective adds value to our work and life. So, give yourself permission to be creative this week - anything goes. Enjoy! Be happy! Watch out - new perspective ahead!
