Work should be fun
My father always said "Work is not supposed to be fun."
Respectfully, I disagree.
Work should be fun. Actually, one shouldn't be working at their current job if it's not fun.
Our job is to make it each work day fun. I'm not saying to plaster a fake smile on your face and proclaim to be having fun. But to find opportunities within your work day to have fun.
And that includes to make it fun for others. Which, in return, makes the work day more fun for us as well.
Sounds like uplifting bullshit? It's not. It's serious business. Your work life might depend on it.
