1. Create Your Own Funnies

Turn a stressful situation into an imaginary cartoon
strip or write imaginary thought bubbles floating above
everyone’s head. “Cartooning” (e.g. imagine that jack ass
of a driver as an actual jack ass) has proven to not only
be a great stress reducer, it’s also an effective way to
tap into your creative side, since thinking in pictures
activates a different part our brains.

2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

Having trouble finding something to name honored employees
after? Cable & Wireless Optus in Sydney, Australia held a
lottery to name floors in their building after staff
members. The winning employee gets the floor “named” for
them, as well as a plaque and photo display on “their”
floor.

But if you work somewhere where you don’t have any floors,
don’t be floored – just get creative. I’ve seen companies
name cafeteria dishes, work projects, and even hallways
after employees! And heck, if that doesn’t work, you
can always try the idea of giving each employee their own
special day once a year–a “holiday” named in their honor.

3. Quote of the Week

“We’re all amateurs, it’s just that some of us are more
professional about it than others.” George Carlin

4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky World

As reported in the morbidly fascinating bathroom book,
“Idiots at Work,” the Ontario Federation of Labor in
Kitchener, Ontario once installed a “Bad Boss” hotline.
Sadly, the system very quickly crashed because of
too many incoming phone calls! Hmmmmmm. I wonder what
the message is?

Happy Hump Day everyone. Remember to make the person
in the mirror laugh at least once today.
