Happy Talk

We have happy paralegals and unhappy paralegals, but apparently on the whole the paralegal profession is a happy one, at least according to Forbes which reports that the legal profession (not just lawyers, but the profession including employees of attorneys) is the tenth happiest in the United States:

To evaluate the data, CareerBliss conducted 200,000 independent employee reviews from 70,000 jobs all over the country to collect 1,600,000 data points on nine factors of workplace happiness. These included the employee’s relationship with their boss and co-workers, their work environment, job resources, compensation, growth opportunities, company culture, company reputation, daily tasks and job control over the work that they do on a daily basis.

Each factor was followed by a ranking of how important that element was in the employee’s overall happiness. These numbers were combined to find an average rating of overall employee happiness for each job type.

The fact is, however, that we cannot depend on our profession to make us happy. We are responsible for our happiness within the profession we choose. Try planning for happiness. While you have to have a dream, you need the happy talk to make that dream come true. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMORAZCog5A.
