Dale Carnegie once said,

“People rarely succeed unless they are having fun in what they are doing.”

So my question today is, are you having fun?

Are you able to laugh at work?

Do others laugh with you?

Are you creating opportunities to interact in a light-hearted manner?

Or is it all huffing and puffing and endless wiping of brows?

Is there a culture of excessive seriousness?

Do leaders frown upon laughter as it makes it seem as though people aren’t solemn or grown up enough?

Don’t be afraid to have fun.

People will enjoy coming to work.

It will bring out their creative side.

It will reduce stress.

And quite frankly, it will increase your opportunity to be successful.
