I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think. What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?
Here goes blog quote #30....
"If you want creative workers, give them enough time to play."
What is this? Is Cleese for real here. Work is supposed to be S-E-R-I-O-U-S.
Says who? I think people take work too darn serious. In fact, they take life too darn serious. His quote, in my opinion, is 100% on the mark.
People do their best in a comfortable relaxed atmosphere. I remember at my old job I loved working on a Saturday, in my jeans. I also enjoyed the after 5 o'clock mental psyche. The phones slow down, and I was just more comfortable. Less stress. That usually meant more production.
So..lighten up at work. Let the workers have some fun. A little stress relief. As long as work gets done and done productively, whats wrong with a bit of fun sprinkled in? You may even find the workers will WANT to stay working with you and your company?
Thats my view.....WHAT SAY YOU?
