Very Good Morning ….
Thought for the day:
Gratitude connects us to others and feeling gratitude allows us to be our best selves.When we are truly grateful, we can count on living the life we want – M.J. Ryan
Plato said that work should be play. Some airline employees have taken his injunction seriously. After landing, one flight attendant announced, “Thank you for flying Delta Business Express. We hope you enjoyed giving us the business as much as we enjoyed taking you for a ride.” There’s a flight attendant who knows how to turn her work into play.
She may have been the same one who, as the passengers disembarked from the aircraft, announced, “Last one off the plane must clean it.”
A British insurance agent has fun with the accident reports he reads from some of his clients. Like the one who wrote: “I started to slow down but the traffic was more stationary than I thought.” You know, stationary traffic can be like that.
Another client reported, “Windscreen broken. Cause unknown. Probably Voodoo.” Voodoo would be a worry.
Before he became an actor, Ray Liotta worked in a cemetery. “I had a hundred people under me, and it was quiet,” he fondly remembers. Actually, that doesn’t sound half bad to me.
I have friends in the medical industry. She is a pharmacist and he is a sales rep for a pharmaceutical company. When I first met them I asked what they did for a living. He said, “She makes drugs and I sell them.”
I like the idea of injecting some play into work. And one of the great benefits is this: when our work is more fun, we like it better. And when we like it better, we do it better.
Are you having fun yet?
Cheers To Your Success!
