Working Happy

Hi there, I’m Karl Staib. I help people unlock their superpowers so they can make a bigger impact on the world.

Have you ever asked yourself…

  1. How can I get ahead at work?
  2. How can I be happier at work?
  3. How do I build my network to improve my career?
  4. How can I finish my project faster?
  5. How do I make a bigger impact?

Then you are in the right place.

Your career success is determined by your superpowers (passion, focus, strengths). If you aren’t using all three elements on a daily basis you are missing out on opportunities.

Here is how Work Happy Now helps you in life and your career.

I help my clients unlock their superpowers so they can be happier and more successful at work and at home.

I believe everyone has superpowers (unique gifts) that no one else has. The key is to unlock these superpowers so you can create more leverage in your life.

In this blog I break down the motivation behind doing great work and together we create work hacks that help you become happier, more productive and successful. As I developed my superpowers the confidence to make my dream career a reality flourished. You can do the same thing.

Leverage Your Superpowers

Three simple words that changed my life. I stopped trying to be something I wasn’t and embraced my superpowers.

I love the idea of superpowers because too many people take their skills for granted. They see weaknesses instead of amazing powers that can change lives. We are here to make each other’s lives better. The only way we can do this is if we believe that we are powerful beings.

Every coach, consultant and guru will tell you to focus on your strengths. This is where I’m different. Strengths are only the 1/3 of the equation.

You need to focus on:

  • Passions – Actions you absolutely love to do.
  • Focus- Actions that get you in “the zone.”
  • Strengths – Actions that come easy to you.

The equation looks like this:

Passion + Focus + Strengths = Success

When you are using your superpowers every day you are unleashing your full potential. Your creativity knows no limits. Without creativity work ceases to be fun. I learned to put fun and happiness first and everything else seems to fall in line.

My Superpowers are:

  • 3 Levels of Listening. (Ask me what this is and I’ll be glad to explain it to you.)
  • Writing
  • Questions that pierce the heart of any problem.
  • Creating momentum to break through blockages.

I’m always surprised by entrepreneurs who hate their businesses. They had the opportunity to create the career of their dreams and they forgot to factor in their happiness. They were too busy trying to make money without taking into account how to create systems that allow them to maximize their superpowers. Instead they are stuck doing work that stifles their creativity.

It all begins with communication. The person that you should be listening to and talking to the most is yourself. You need to be honest with yourself about what you want and how you will get it. No one is going to hand over more money or happiness. It’s up to you to make sure that it happens.

About Karl Staib

I was diagnosed with cancer in 2010. It was and still feels unreal. I could have given up on my dream, but this crazy experience only made me become more focused. I stopped doing shit work and worked on things I truly cared about. Of course I was scared and still get scared of failure, but it’s natural. I use it as a motivation tool.

I’m a seasoned speaker, author of the book Work Happy Now (Amazon link) and writer who helps people uncover their superpowers in their careers. This allows people to be happier, more productive and do work that they care about. I’m really a big dork with some cool superpowers. I love my family, my dog (when she isn’t digging in my backyard), Yoga, business books, and journaling. Before we get any further. I have a confession.

My confession to you is that I hated every job I’ve ever had. I hated being told what to do. My stubbornness made me perpetually unhappy. It’s why I wanted to learn the concepts of how to be happier at work and life. I wanted to solve what 84% of people are struggling with today – their career.

For over three years I have uncovered secrets to doing work we love. So why are some types of work enjoyable while other types of work are torturous?

We don’t have a lot of time on this earth. We can literally die at any moment. Why waste it doing work that doesn’t utilize your unique talents?
