Are you happy?

Just a quick post to share an image I found via a social work blog (the original source is here) because it has, I think, real resonance for newspaper journalists right now.
I’d say that currently there are more opportunities than ever before to change something that’s making you unhappy – whether it’s learning new skills to specialise, sharing information and telling stories in different ways, helping build and grow niche communities, or just striking out on your own in the spirit of entrepreneurial journalism. Anyway, it’s my new desktop wallpaper; I like the sentiment and it’s got me thinking – what do I need to change?

One thought on “Are you happy?

  1. Great image and I absolutely agree with the sentiment behind it.

    I've been a bit “stuck” myself of late so I took steps to acquire some extra skills. I'm so glad I did as it's led to a work op at the Beeb and a plan for a project with another freelance journalist in my area!
