International Fun at Work Day.......

International Fun at Work Day.......

There are 2 celebrations of this day Fun at Work Day will always be on Jan. 28th. Having Fun  However, International Fun at Work Day will always be on April 1st.

Fun at Work Day is a day to have fun at work for once. What a day to have fun at work.  Who would have thunk it, April 1st, a day like April Fool’s Day would be a day to have fun at work?  In the ideal world, work should be fun.  But normally, work is not intended to have fun.  It's intended to get work done and not play.

You're a very lucky person, if you if you can get work done and have fun doing it. The lucky souls in this situation, love their job.

Unfortunately, all of us are not lucky enough to have a job that's fun to do.  If that's you, then today is a day just for you!  Think of ways to make your job more fun and exciting.  Look to do some fun things at work today, even if it takes away from production just a wee bit.

If you are having a tough time thinking of fun thing to do here is a website that advocates having fun; http://playfair.com/.   Let me suggest sending a standing “O”vation to someone to start the fun.  All you need is an email address.  If your company meetings are boring then you may want to have Matt come in a do a presentation.

If you do fun things today that is counter-productive, or takes you away from the job, make sure you get your boss' permission first.  Better still, get him or her involved.

Today is really going to be fun at work (an antique shop, in my case, for today anyway) because it is April Fool's Day!  And, I have been known to pull some practical jokes on select other dealers from time to time.

Hi Don - I am one of the lucky few.  I love the real estate business.  I get frustrated and upset at times but I enjoy the days.
