1. Ignore the Fun Suckers!

Lately I’ve had a whack of folks (1 whack = 6 people) ask me
what they can do about all the “fun suckers” they work with:
The people who pooh-pooh everything and anything resembling fun,
the workers who continually gripe about how unfair life is, the
employee who—like a vampire on steroids—sucks the life out
everyone around them. The best advice I can give to folks is
simply this: ignore them! Focus on the TOP 10 or 20% of people
who “get it”! Focus on the people who have energy, passion,
commitment and who want to work hard and who believe that fun is
an important part of being successful and productive and don’t
let the lifeless bottom feeders get you! If you bow or adapt to
the lowest common denominator then nothing will change, and the
fun sucking vampires will have won! And it’s far too easy for
teams to use the fun suckers as an excuse for never trying
anything creative or fun. Focus on the folks who want to change
the way work is done and you’ll save a lot of energy, you’ll
get a lot more accomplished, and, who knows, you may even
convert a few fun suckers along the way.

2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

For your next staff meeting, convention or heck, casual Friday,
have everyone wear a wacky name tag. You can make them up
yourself, or order fun tags at www.pcnametag.com, where
you’ll find dozens of tags with identifiers such as:
BORED MEMBER, PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS, BIG CHEESE, JOKER,
COMPUTER GEEK, ROOKIE OF THE YEAR, RUNS WITH SCISSORS,
OFFICAL SOMETHING, TROUBLE MAKER and PRINCESS.

3. Quote of the Week

“To make mistakes is human; to stumble is commonplace; to be
able to laugh at yourself is maturity.” William Arthur Ward

4. It’s a Wacky, Quacky, World

Here’s a novel business idea for some of you: A newspaper seller
in China uses a duck as his work assistant. The duck uses his
beak to collect money and pass the newspapers on to customers,
and if the seller dozes of, the duck quacks to wake him up!
Wow! What more could you want in a personal assistant?

Happy Hump Day one and all. Keep laughing so you don’t quack up.
