Are you having some fun? Sadly, too many people just don’t have enough of it.
Can you think of something fun that you really love to do? Is there any way to work it into your schedule this week? Put fun on your to-do list. Make it a priority.
Spending several days in New Orleans during Mardi Gras got me thinking about the need for fun. NOLA during Carnival is a well-oiled fun machine and it’s wonderful how people spill out onto the streets to celebrate with friends, neighbors, and total strangers.
Everyone needs down time, especially those in high pressure jobs or really boring jobs and those whose work requires creativity and innovation.
Hey managers, are your people are having some fun? It doesn’t always have to be complicated. I wrote about making workplace fun happen in this earlier post.
One more thing about Mardi Gras – I love it for a lot of reasons but especially because it allows so many artists to showcase their spectacular talent and make a living doing what they love as float builders.
Would love to hear ways you incorporate fun into your workplace.
