Focused professionals take their business seriously, sometimes too seriously and become overwhelmed, spread themselves too thinly and unknowingly drop their quality.

This has certainly been my experience and an athlete and as a business leader. I often wonder how much better I could have been if I had a little more fun when competing. I would have expressed myself differently.

Take time to laugh at yourself, billy silly and have some fun at your own expense.

When we learn to lighten up and don’t spread ourselves too thinly our quality and performance improve. Play to your strengths and enjoy the moment.

Otherwise, life will pass you by and you’ll wonder where the time went.

How do you make time for fun?
