1. It Could Have Been Worse

We’ve spoken often here at the Hump Day about how humor
can help us reframe our stressors, by getting us to tap
into our funny bones by imagining how things could have
been a LOT worse.

In light of the recent Olympics, it’s interesting to
note how a study on happiness shows that bronze medalists
tend to be much happier and more satisfied with their
performance than silver medalists! Why? Because silver
medalists tend to look at the glass half empty, focusing on
how they came just a hair from getting the coveted gold,
while bronze medalists tend to practice the old “it could
have been worse routine” and therefore are grateful to
have just made it onto the podium!
2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

Alberta-based WestJet Airlines recently celebrated their
10th anniversary by giving customers a $25.00 credit on
a future flight and celebrating publicly with a
huge cake – a great reminder that if you want to have
fun and get some free press to boot, think of fun ways
you can include your customers in your celebrations.
3. Quote of the Week

“The essence of creativity is not some special talent,
it is much more the ability to play. We unblock creativity
by getting past the fear of making a mistake.” John Cleese
4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky World

Mitsubishi Motors sponsored a poll searching for the
wackiest street names in the United States. The winners
included: Psycho Path, Constipation Ridge, Divorce Court
and Farfrompoopen Road!
