Having a bad day at work? My work day:


Today I pressed the red button leaving work. I was indeed having a bad day at work.

And if you check the red people icons in my photo (it show’s today’s employee mood result) – I wasn’t the only coworker that hit the red button.

And for those of you who read this thinking it’s because today is a Monday – no, that’s not why :) .

There’s just a lot going on at work right now.

In fact, our Employee Mood KPI in Celpax is at the lowest in the history of our company!

Like many of you have experienced – and told me – when a company goes through change it’s sometimes tough. Like, very tough. I hear you!

But sometimes it’s easy to pop back.

When I started writing this I googled for some images to illustrate my Red Mood. That feeling of being drained of energy. Then I ran into this silly blog post about people having a shitty day at work.

To my surprise I found myself a) reading it and b) starting to laugh as I scrolled down.

And boom. The red-button mood is gone.

It doesn’t mean that tomorrow will be a green-button day. But it means I’m heading home with a smile on my lips.

And that’s worth a lot to get new energy for tomorrow’s workday :)

So the next time I’m having a bad day at work I won’t beat myself up too much.

I’ll look for the silly stuff, or look for changes to be made…
