Adam Kayce : Monk At Work

Fun! Yes, fun!

Great point — if I'm bored, over-serious, or just plain not enjoying what I'm doing, I just can't do it. I procrastinate, avoid, and eventually, quit.

(hey, that's why I'm an entrepreneur... ;-) )

Hi Adam

over-serious! I knew I'd forgotten something: don't take yourself too serious, you'll loose some (well most) of the fun in your work.

And your right: as entrepreneur life is never boring. That's why we get so much done I think ;-)

Dawud Miracle

Fun, certainly. I don't think I could work at all if I didn't enjoy what I was doing.

But what do you handle the tasks that aren't fun?

Karin H.

Hi Dawud

Good question. I try to make it fun (or do it quickly and as a first task of the day) and I remind myself that the result of finishing the task will be worthwhile for our company.

That's why I like Wendy's tip: commitment. I'm committed to my company, to my job and all the tasks that come with it. So handling even 'not-funny' tasks becomes part of the fun of running our company as best as possible.

Hi Karin,

I will be responding to your tagging- I don't yet know how to link and do some other things on the computer- trying to find out.

For me, I have to start the day with some quiet time with the Divine and dedicate the day in that direction, or I find that the gears just don't tend to mesh.

I like what you said about the fun aspect, for sure. And for me, probably the biggest underlying strength is commitment once I have decided to do something, even if I start without much of a clue about how I will get there. So Wendy's piece at Emom connects for me.

Also, making use of the wisdom and help of others, hopefully connecting with them in a warm and enjoyable way.

And part of this connecton is humor! Share some good laughs. And laugh at myself.

That's all for now, but I will expand in my blog.

Hi Stuart

Isn't it 'funny' how we all have our special ways to start the day? I can't get going without having had my first cup of coffee of the day ;-)

Looking forward to read more on your blog. If you need any help with coding (linking etc) just give me a shout.

Dawud Miracle

I guess I just do the 'un-fun' (like the rhyme) tasks in between things I really enjoy. That way, the fun doesn't end for too long each day.
