One of the most energy draining aspects of work is seriousness. Don’t get me wrong, there is a time and place to be serious, but it seems that it is becoming ALL the time and EVERY place!
How many times have you been in:
- Meetings have you had that have just dragged on while someone was waffling about the importance of so and so and you could tell that NO ONE was listening?
- Sales presentations where the sales person was so serious, it turned you off their product?
- Conversations with colleagues who sounded like they were running down a checklist of things to say?

So are you having fun yet?
