I’ve been on a kick lately of having fun – with a purpose.
I tell my audiences that happiness is an attitude. It’s a choice. But an often neglected portion of the happiness equation goes beyond attitude, mind-set and emotion. To do it right— to be your happiest— you also have to get physically involved with creating some joy for yourself.
In other words, to be happy you’ve got to DO something. Maybe it’s goof with skate shoes and your kids. Or play a harmless joke on your work mates. Or take piano lessons. Or maybe it’s to take responsibility for making somebody feel like a million bucks and act on it.
I’m lucky because I have a ton of hobbies that bring me passion and joy. One of my latest is Heelys. I’m tellin’ ya, put some wheels on your shoes and go shopping and … BAM! You’re in a great mood.
Proof? I’ve got it baby! Check out this short video of my kids and I breaking every rule in the how-to-behave-in-a-store book.
I challenge you: find something today that gets YOU involved in creating your own joy. Build something. Plant something. Play with something. And then…. Do it. Notice your mood change? Guaranteed or your money back.
Leave a comment and let me know if you agree.
Do you agree with me that happiness at work is related to excellence at work? Do you need a speaker to help your organization to get there too? I’d love to work with you. It will be fun. Promise. Heelys optional. Go to the contact page now.

I love the heelies and was always jealous of the kids with them on. After seeing your video I may just have to go out and try a pair. Did you wear a helmet the first time?
Yeah, helmet on for the first time. Plus wrist guards, ….everything! I believe in having fun. But I also believe in not breaking anything. :)
Can you imagine how embarrassing it would be to explain that I broke my wrist Heeyling in the kitchen!?
Happiness is a state of mind that really depends how we see the situations in our lives each day. you can have all the riches in the world but still see it as a lonely place.~”`
