BUSINESS BASICS NUMBER 19

BUSINESS_BASIC_019_IMAGE

Have fun! This business basic is priceless. Every smart business owner knows its value.

Some make the argument that business is not about having fun, but about getting work done. Although I totally agree that we must get the work done, we still must ask the question why can’t our work be fun? In my experience, the most productive workers are the ones that have learned the value of having fun on the job. Looking for the good in every situation, being optimistic, enjoying the opportunities around you, and having a sense of humor all are tremendous healers of the soul. The employee goodwill generated subtly affirms the value of each employee. That’s an intangible feeling that brings a tangible ROI.

Work hard, work smart, work diligently . . . and choose to have fun doing it.
