Laughter, fun and enjoyment. Aren’t these things that we all seek? I’ve often underestimated their value as I plod along through work – like spending another Sunday at my glamorous desk enjoying the life of the entrepreneur. I’ve learned a great deal , though, from my good friend Jim Pelley who practices what he preaches. His business is Laughterworks Seminars and he’s been teaching the value of humor to Fortune 500 companies for many years.
Jim speaks about how humor can help manage change with workplace/life issues, make teams more effective, banish stress and unleash creativity. It’s awesome to have a friend that deeply understands the relationship between humor, communication, and productivity.
Recently Jim and I both attended a breakfast themed “Radical Gratitude” where celebrating a life of abundance was encouraged. What better representation of appreciation, self-affirmation and a life of abundance than the gift of laughter? What better representation of true character than a life-long commitment to encouraging enjoyment? AND, teaching how it can make many aspects of your life and work more effective!
Some of the most beautiful sounds I know are the laughter of my wife and daughter. So make sure someone hears your laugh today. It may be the beautiful sound they’re looking for…
