Are you having fun? Or are you remembering the times when your life was more fun than it is now?
I used to think that fun wasn’t a value. That fun wasn’t a worthy value to uphold. For some peculiar reason, I thought that honesty and integrity were more worthy ideals than Fun. However, what I have come to realise is that I only really have fun when all my other values are being adhered to. If one value is out of whack, then I can feel it and I don’t have a whole lot of fun with whatever I’m doing.
Today I assisted a very talented lady to get clear on her values. It was a profound experience for her, one that she had never done – and it assisted her to choose her direction that matched her core values. She discovered where she had been out of alignment with her values, and sorted through the priority of her values.
I have also learnt along the way that when I’m having fun with work, it doesn’t feel like work. I have the most fun when I’m using my talents and skills to the max. This is also the time when I allow others to do the tasks that are in their own skillset – and they have fun too!
When things are fun, I find my productivity goes up. When things feel all too hard, that’s when I know I’m doing something wrong, or I’m focusing on the wrong things.
How could you turn whatever you’re doing right now into something more fun? Because it’s Chooseday today, you can choose the values you wish to take forward, and how you perceive whatever you’re doing.
