For this class, you are asked to submit an individual assignment where you conduct research (using FIU online library, legitimate and credible sources of information on the Internet, and/or other legitimate and credible sources of information such as books that you own or the experts that you have access to) on how to actually be happier in life and in the workplace.
You are asked to put together a 2-page paper (a minimum of 2 pages and a maximum of 2 pages). The page limit excludes the references (i.e., the reference list at the end of your paper that includes the sources of information that you relied on). The page limit also excludes any inspiring or creative title for the paper that you may include or your personal identifiers (e.g., your name, last name, and panther ID). Because this is a 2-page paper, every single sentence that you write counts. Therefore, please make every sentence count. 🙂 Plan what you are going to write and how you are going to write it in advance so that you can easily work with the 2-page limit. Please remember that you are asked to write a 2-page paper (i.e., with a minimum of 2 pages and a maximum of 2 pages). Planning goes a long way when it comes to producing a high-quality paper and observing the parameters you are given.
Please divide your paper into two. In the first page, write about how you can be happier in your life. Then, in the second page, write about how you can be happier in your work life. Please separate these two parts under two main headings such as “HOW I CAN BE HAPPIER IN MY OWN LIFE,” and “HOW I CAN BE HAPPIER AT MY WORK LIFE.”
Please use Times New Roman, 12-font, and 1.5 line spacing (you can use single or double spacing if you prefer to do so) and type your paper in a “Word” document.
Please make sure that the content of your paper is rich as in it includes different ideas on how you can, in practice, live a more joyful life and have a more joyful experience at work (regardless of what you do for a living). Please also make sure that your paper is practice-oriented in that you provide practical ideas for yourself on how to live a more blissful life and have a more blissful experience at work. In addition, please make sure that your paper is personalized towards your own life and your own self such that the ideas that you present are very relevant to your present and/or future life and how you are planning to keep enhancing your joy and happiness in life and at work.
Make sure to include a reference list at the end of your paper where you list the sources that you relied on, ideally, using the APA format. Always be sure to cite the sources of information that you relied on so that you ethically honor others’ ideas and creativity. If you use information from a source verbatim (word by word), make sure that you put that sentence in quotation marks and include which page of the source you took the information from, not to mention the source itself. Alternatively, you can re-word the information (without changing its meaning) that you took from a source and cite, again, the exact source you took the information from (no need for quotation marks in this case). Please feel free to research into the APA format for citing references for more detailed information. Please note that getting savvier at doing research and citing the (credible and legitimate) sources of information that you relied on can help you if you would like to write your own book(s) in the future. 🙂
