If we no longer have the experience of joy in our workplace, it is an awareness signal reminding us we are in trouble. Feel lazy and late to office, leave the office sharp after times up, less social with colleagues and even feel irritate facing with top management. If we love the job, this circumstances will not occur because love spread across job task, colleagues and everywhere. We will feel joyful if we love that job real much.
