“People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.”
Continuing on from the previous post entitled ‘Fun at work‘ (click here to read), today the issue can be expanded to consider additional ideas, more fun at work as it were.
When we are doing our best, living up to our potential, we can be said to be having fun at work. That said, more fun at work is not only about our performance efforts. We might wish to consider the enjoyment all can have when the atmosphere is harmonious, with folk focused on the achievement of universally understood and respected goals.
Then again, the presence of fun at work could be a factor in itself of providing stakeholders in general and customers in particular with a positive experience to create a lasting good impression of the enterprise. Certain themed restaurants, in addition to some retail outlets, seem to place emphasis on providing a sense of fun at work.
I am sure the idea of fun at work brings to mind further ideas besides those mentioned here. If you’d like to share your input on this issue, please leave a comment below. For now, thanks for reading this ‘More fun at work‘ post today.
