"People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing." — Dale Carnegie
Are you having fun at what you do? In life? At home? In the workplace? If you’re not, it’s time to re-evaluate what you are doing in these areas. You life should be fun. Remember being a kid – did you like things that weren’t fun. Recess was the best! Why? Because it was the most fun. As we grow up, though, we start to think in terms of – this job is ok, it pays the bills. Or – my marriage is ok, we only fight a little bit. But do you really enjoy these things. Examine your life, find those things which aren’t fun. Look for ways to change. Remember – we have one life to live. How do you want that life to be defined?
Sure, there will always be days that aren’t "fun". But think big picture — long term. Are you really happy and having fun with your life. Try something new. Surprise your spouse. Volunteer for an event at your child’s school. Try some new activity you’ve always thought about. Try something weird or "out there" for you. You’ll probably surprise yourself at how much fun all of these can be. And in the process, how much more fun you are having in general.
Get out there and have some fun!
