1. Mandatory Fun?

I stumbled upon the phrase “mandatory fun” recently,
which refers to a celebratory business event that holds no
interest for the participants but requires your attendance
since names are being taken for attendance. Hmmmmmmm.
Sort of defeats the purpose of having fun, doesn’t it?
The article reminded me of the importance of making sure
that we’re not accidentally de-motivating people when the
whole idea is to motivate them, because, well, that’s just
a little silly.

2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

Hold a celebrity look-alike contest. I had a client
recently who hosted a fun evening for their employees that
featured a “separated-at-birth” contest with their
employees. In the meantime, if you want to know who you
most resemble, you can upload a digital photo of yourself
to www.myheritage.com and see who your famous twins are.
I tried it myself, and apparently I most resemble actress
Lisa Kudrow from “Friends”, Richard Nixon (!!!), and Neil
Sedaka. (Don’t shoot the messenger if you’re not happy
with the results!)

3. Quote of the Week

“Many times what cannot be refuted by arguments
can be parried by laughter. Philosopher Eramus
==========================================================
4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky World

A retired nurse from Arkansas saved her brother’s chicken
(“Boo Boo”) by administering mouth-to-beak resuscitation
after finding the chicken floating face down in a pond!
(What’s next, CPR for cows? The Heimlich maneuver
on roosters?)

Happy Hump day one and all.
