ABC's of Business Dispositions - Part F
'F' Disposition - Fun
Let’s have some fun! Four welcomed words. When do you have fun? Where do you have fun? Is fun reserved for home, the weekends or your vacation? When you think of fun, does your work or place of business come to mind? Is running your business fun? Are you having fun managing or growing your business? If your answer is ‘no’ to those last questions, then why not? When did it become less enjoyable? Was it the busyness and responsibility of running the business?
When people are having fun in a place, they want to stay longer. When the fun stops, people tend to leave. Think back to the job you loved. Likely, one of the things you loved about it was that it was fun to you at the time. There is a chance that your business was born out of fun. That thing that you liked doing that brought you happiness. It was the thing that you enjoyed doing and you were fortunate enough to be able to capitalize on it. Even in the busyness that comes with managing and growing a business, don’t lose the fun, it is key to your success. For your sake and those connected to your business, find the fun again.

People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing. - -Dale Carnegie
A business has to be involving, it has to be fun, it has to exercise your creative instincts. --Richard Branson
