Work should be fun. That means a lot of things - like caring about your work, being more engaged and being more productive. You can accomplish some of this by working on things you love and enjoy (making work less work?). You can accomplish it by communicating in less frustrating ways and making it easier to find information that matters. You can also accomplish it by laughing more and not taking everything so seriously.
My great friend Jim Pelley travels around the globe as a keynote speaker and expert on laughter in the workplace. He talks about using humor to embrace risk, manage change, provide better customer service and more. You can do great work and be productive without feeling like you want the day to be over so you can move on to something more fun.
So today, if you’re stressed and feeling the pressure of deadlines and commitments. Just say, “Chicken pot, chicken pot, chicken pot pie!”
Have a laugh today and everyday!
