Happiness means something different to each of us. To some, it’s simply a state of mind, where we feel loved, or wanted, or valued. It’s the joy of holding a baby or being greeted at the door by your dog. Or perhaps it’s just being comfortable in our own skin and content with who we are — a coming of age.
To others, it’s more measurable, like an outcome or goal achieved. It may be running a successful business or being recognized for our accomplishments at work.
And yet to others, it’s a byproduct of what we put out into the world to inspire happiness in those we care about. It’s simply listening to someone who doesn’t feel heard. Or replacing judgment with empathy. It’s caring more.
To the team at Calyx, our happiness is derived from making our customers, well, happy. For example, we take every possible measure to make their’ lives easier, wherever they work. It’s using technology to create a better way forward so they can focus on what they do best. Of course, we care about profitability and business success, but we’ve found over the years that success is an outcome of living our values: doing the right thing, owning it, and challenging everything we know. When we do what we say we’ll do, we inspire happiness. Frankly, it really is that simple.
The world needs more happiness these days. We all need to feel loved and wanted and valued. We need positively in our lives and to encourage it in others. The world needs more caring and less judgment.
Go. Make more happy.
