Happiness

Happiness and satisfaction are subjective concepts – while for some of us monetary benefits can be equated with job satisfaction, some might strive for recognition of their hard-work and lose motivation on failing to achieve so.

No matter what the standards are, being content with our careers is crucial for maintaining the ‘work-life’ balance.
