Have Fun Doing It!

Don't forget to play!

When you play, play hard; when you work, don’t play at all.”
Theodore Roosevelt

Far be it for me to disagree with the 26th president of the United States, but I do.

I do so adamantly.

I firmly believe that the road to success is finding something you love to do and then finding a way to make a living doing it. If you’re not having fun working, you may be in the wrong line of work.

Don’t get me wrong here. I am not saying we shouldn’t work hard. As a single mom, I definitely know the value and necessity of hard work. In fact, I probably work too much. I am simply saying there is no reason we can’t have fun doing it.

What are some things that you do to keep your work fun?

    At the risk of sounding like a “me too” person, I could not agree more with the statement “finding something you love to do and then finding a way to make a living doing it.”

    Enjoying what you do makes the time pass so much faster and the enjoyment of the job yields far better results. Your smile is reflected in the quality of the work.

    I must say that sometimes it is less stressful if you love and you enjoy what you’re doing. The people that surrounds you at work is a big factor as well, but still your decision to be happy while working. Successful people are those who treat their work seriously but still find time to smile at the end of the day.

    I certainly agreed to this:
    “If you’re not having fun working, you may be in the wrong line of work.”
    For my work is not about making money out of daily reporting and sitting for more than 8 hours, rather building your own future and fortifying your inner self by striving hard and keep holding on your dreams. Yet sometimes a it’s hard to know which way to go, but as long as you stay strong you can make it!

  5. I agree.. passion is a big factor for success. If you make a business out of your passion it won’t be long until you become a big dog in that industry. Great post 🙂

    I really enjoy the idea of working for myself ever since I found out that it was possible to increase my business by blogging I’ve been doing it and the traffic to my site just keeps increasing.It is a joy to be free.

  17. Striving for success is a long journey that requires lots of hard work. To keep yourself energetic, you must have a very good balance between work and play. Nobody can keep working continuously without the enjoyment of doing work he wants.
    Therefore, we have to make sure the things we’re working on are of our interest and to make sure that we have enough time for our relaxation.

  18. The best part about blogging is that you can work and play at the same time (besides professional sports). Blogging can be fun to do and mind involving at the same time.

  20. I totally agree! We spend so much time working, that we should be doing something we love, otherwise, we won’t be very happy.

    To keep my work fun, I work at a few different things – all of which I love. That way, it provides variety, offers challenge and lets me have fun in the process:-)

    I have always loved making and giving gift baskets. I think they are such fun gifts to receive (and give.) So, it was a natural thing for me to run an online gift basket store.
