It has been said that in the course of our lives, we spend more time working than doing any other activity except sleeping. Therefore, it stands to reason that the ways in which we spend that enormous amount of our time (i.e., what we do for work, how we carry out our work tasks, when and how long we work, with whom we work, the environment in which we work, and how we feel about our work) are powerful factors influencing our experience of daily living.
