An article today mentions that about half of U.S. workers are happy with their jobs, citing issues like pay, bonuses, and productivity expectations.

The long-term drop in job satisfaction has been driven by rapid changes in technology, employers' push for productivity and shifting expectations among workers, said Lynn Franco, director of the group's Consumer Research Center.

Are you happy with your job? Should we expect to be happy with our jobs?

You can be lonely anywhere. Or with anyone.
You can be fulfilled and happy anywhere. But only with yourself (although you can have company on the ride).
It's all inside.

Take the 100 Acre Personality Quiz!
I'm finally getting over this awful cold thing. I've been sick since I got back from Lotusphere; it even took a while for the antibiotics to kick in and do any good. But, I'm finally getting better. Thanks for all the times you checked in!

Look for more updates soon as I dig out of the work that's been piling up while I've been so sick.

About a year ago, I discovered this word: mudita. It is the opposite of schadenfreude (taking delight in others' sadness), meaning that it is joy in the pleasure or happiness of others.

One of my (many) goals for the year is to more fully develop mudita -- I think it will be especially helpful as I watch two of my dear friends have babies and grow with their families. It was a goal last year, but not one that I think I succeeded in.
