Do You Love What You Do?
This Valentine's Day, are you thinking about your significant other—Work?
Sound absurd? Maybe. But if you work full time, you probably spend more time with Work than with anyone else in your life.
Doesn't it make sense to fall in love with it?!
A recent Gallup poll
reported that 50% of employees are unengaged
(present but uninspired) and another 20% are actively disengaged
(very unhappy at work), which means 70% of us are unhappily married
to our jobs! That's the bad news.
Here's the good news:
Putting fun and playfulness to work can ignite the passion, creativity, and courage that will enable you to fall in love with what you do and make a living doing what you love.
In this month's Fun Blog
, we explore love at work
and share fun coaching tips to help you liberate more joy in this significant relationship.
Check out the inspiring and humorous TED Talk
below in which Shawn Achor shares the happy secret to better work (and just about everything else).
We encourage you to try some of our mini play breaks
to blur the line between work and play which, paradoxically, can make your work more successful.
Need more help? Our professional fun coaching sessions and playshops
can help you put the power of play to work!
