Happy

Work and life is pretty pointless if you’re not happy.

We want our clients, our suppliers, our staff and their families to be happy. So we operate openly, ethically and (we like to think) with a good sense of humour.

We aim to be givers rather than takers. That’s not always easy for a young company and as we’ve established ourselves we’ve been astounded at how much help people have been prepared to give to help. To those people; thank you. We believe the best way we can repay your kindness is to pay it forward rather than pay it back.

Happiness is essential to people’s mental wellbeing, which is why we support Action For Happiness. To be frank, it can be a bit happy clappy at times but its heart is in the right place and its guide to happiness is spot on. It’s reproduced below with their permission.

If you’re interested in this subject you might like the following:

Derren Brown’s book Happy: Why More or Less Everything is Absolutely Fine is the best book I’ve read on the subject, though it owes a great debt to its similar predecessor, Oliver Burkeman’s The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can’t Stand Positive Thinking.

Solve for Happy: Engineer Your Path to Joy by Mo Gawdat looks promising but I have yet to read it.

Ari Yeganeh’s Happy blog on Conscioused.org’s blog is another interesting perspective.
