All of us look forward to the weekend or our upcoming vacation or that next big event. Why? Because we love to have fun. Sometimes we simply get stuck in our mundane tasks and we look forward to things that are a blast.
But what if our most productive time could be the time we’re simply having fun?
Experience Over Stuff
Why? Because experiences build memories, and memories last longer than that buggy video game we cost eighty dollars. In fact, even if we really enjoy a game and build great memories that lasts twenty or thirty years, it’s because of the experience we had and not the game itself.
The Way We’re Wired
We are wired to enjoy things. It’s how we lock things in. It’s how we become more connected with what we’re doing. Have you ever taken a shower, stepped out and then stopped short, wondering if you remembered to shampoo? The mundane just doesn’t help us remember things.
When people enjoy their work, they dig in. When they enjoy a movie, they tell friends. When they enjoy an experience, they build memories. It’s just the way we’re wired.
Do you want to get people excited about what you have to say? Have fun! Do you want to connect with people? Share the fun! Do you want to make your employees more productive and more excited to come to work? Let them have fun!
Do you want to improve your business? Have fun!
