No matter what your job, whether you’re an entrepreneur, running a small or large business, or working for someone else, please don’t forget to inject a bit of FUN and PASSION into what you do.
For many, fun and passion are natural and a part of their day-to-day lives; but that’s not the case for everyone. If you employ people, fun and passion will help you be a better boss, and help your employees be better people too.
That’s a picture of a rather large birthday cake my wife and I made for my son’s 2nd birthday (celebrated on Saturday.) There’s no great sense of scale in that picture, but it was so long I had to cut a carboard box into shape as the “serving tray.”
It was fun to make (minus the near-fist fight that broke out over how to decorate it…don’t ask), and my wife and I are passionate about creating over-the-top cakes for our son’s birthdays. We haven’t gone the crazy “entertainment route” yet (with flying trapeze, dancers and who-knows-what-else is en vogue for birthday parties these days), but we sure do love our cakes.
(And yes, this post was just an excuse for putting up that cool picture. But I still believe in a wee bit of fun and passion at work…the “good clean” variety though, ok?)
