What you are stands over you the while, and thunders, so that I cannot hear what you say to the contrary.

The most fun

Those who get the most done are those who have the most fun. Those who work at the highest level of effectiveness are those who genuinely enjoy what they’re doing.

Having fun doesn’t mean being useless or irresponsible or lacking in focus. Having fun means having a positive, playful, curious and enthusiastic attitude about whatever you’re doing.

If you must get it done, then get it done while having fun. Put fun into it, and you’ll get much more out of it.

Fighting against yourself, against the effort, and against the situation does not achieve anything of value. Instead, allow yourself to enjoy the experience.

As long as you’re doing it anyway, make it fun. Truly enjoy and treasure your work, your life, your responsibilities and your circumstances, and make the very best of them.

There are countless ways to have fun when you make the choice to do it. So go ahead, have a whole lot of real, genuine fun, and you’ll get a whole lot more done.

— Ralph Marston
