“Having fun, we get more work done.”
I have written about this core value so many times! It’s always a challenge to sit down and write about it without repeating things I have said in the past about it. I have mentioned that having fun helps you forget that you are working, therefore helping you forget your working. I have also mentioned that having fun can help you release hormones that will help you stay energetic during work and keep going.
I have also written about how changing the environment you are in is not always possible but changing the vibe of the environment is. One thing I feel I may not have written about before is how having fun we get more work done can also mean finding ‘work’ that is fun.
Many of us find ourselves at certain times in our lives doing jobs or work that we really don’t like, and we try to figure out ways to make it better by trying to have fun, which is good. We have to try to make life or work easier, and having fun can really help, but there is something even better than that.
What is it? Finding a job, or opening a business doing something you already love, is the real joy in life. I remind people to figure out a way to have fun and make tasks more fun, but honestly, what’s even better is just figuring out what you love and what is fun for you and doing it for a living. How do you figure this out?
Well, 1st, we must figure out what you love, what makes you happy, and what is so fun for you that you would do it for free. Once we figure that out, it’s time to get going! Take that job, start that business, or volunteer to oversee that project. Once you do something that you already love every day, you will see something amazing happen. You will start to work 10, 12, or even 16 hours and not even realize it because you love it so much.
This also leads to better results because you do it more often. When you love what you do, you don’t get tired; you just run out of hours to do it. You don’t get frustrated; you just challenge yourself to figure it out, which becomes even more fun. The bottom line is you need to either find something you love and figure out a way to make a living at it, OR you can do what I did.
You can figure out what you are already a part of. Ask more questions, do more research, and maybe, just maybe, you will find what I did. Maybe you will find that what you are a part of is different from what you have thought, which makes it more fun to be part of. This happened to me! When I first started my TLC journey, I didn’t realize that I loved helping people and that TLC was a great environment for so many people, but once I did, I realized that I loved both of those things, and I reminded myself of what I was a part of every day everything changed.
I understood clearly what I was a part of, which instantly made it more fun. This could happen to you; it’s just a matter of asking questions and learning as much as you can about what you already do. You may be surprised to learn that you are part of something special like I did.
Or option number 2 is figuring out what you love and what is fun and just go do that! Either way, you will find that you will get more work done when you have fun, and if you get more work done and you love the work, you will have even more fun! I hope you find what you love in life and figure out a way to have fun every day, wake up every day excited to start, and go to bed every night feeling satisfied.
At TLC, having fun, we get more work done because we love what we do and we are aware of what we are a part of, and we love it! It’s time for you to go figure out what you’re a part of, what you have fun doing or both, but please do it now!
Thanks for reading, and have a great week!
