Do you want to have a blast at work? Then make work a blast!
Foster the Right Environment
There was stress and frustration. There were opportunities to yell, throw a tantrum, and gripe. There probably always will be. Just because there are, doesn’t mean it will help. It doesn’t mean it will improve the set. It doesn’t even mean it’s warranted.
Quite the opposite actually. Creative people do their best work when they feel comfortable and supported. Sometimes patience is the best course of the day. Despite the frustration, the best option is to encourage, and change the tone.
If you want to have a fun workplace, have fun. Enjoy yourself. Let others enjoy themselves. Find ways to make work exciting.
Bring the Energy
One way to do that is to bring the right energy. Sometimes you might have to take a chance by sharing your thoughts about making work more exciting with coworkers, or simply bringing an upbeat and positive energy into the office. Sometimes it might just be you until others catch on.
Take Time for Creativity
Finally, if you want to make work an adventure, you will want to find unique ways to inject adventure into the day. Perhaps it might be nerf gun fights, crazy games where people have to do something every time the word of the day is said, or Compliment Brian Day.
Make Work an Adventure
You can make your work an adventure by fostering an environment that people enjoy, by bringing energy that excites people and draws them in, and by taking time for creativity which will generate new ideas and new ways to keep the adventure going.
It’s your job. It’s your life. Go out and make it an adventure.
