Here's what's cool. I've been working with this leadership team day and night for the last 6 days preparing every detail for a week long staff training next week, basically without break. We are absolutely exhausted. But before we called it quits for the day, they decided they had to make a treasure chest and a gigantic parrot costume to model our theme of 'treasure island'.
Work is so much better when you top it off with a cardboard treasure chest and a giant parrot costume.
I'm really in love right now with how much a sense of play adds to serious work. It energizes and makes me remember how fortunate I am to do the work that I do. This team reminds me of that every day.
Life is good.
