DON’T FORGET TO HAVE FUN
Rule #22 in “The New Hustle” by Business Chicks founder Emma Isaacs is JUMP IN THE POOL. If you have been following me for a while, you know that the water is my happy place and has been since I was a young child. This quote resonates with me on so many levels, but in its simplest form it reminds me to have fun. It takes me back to when I was *much younger when you had fun for yourself. You weren’t trying to please anyone or worried of others judgement, you just jumped in the pool, even if it was via an unsuccessful bombing technique. As we get older, we often lose our fun because we do things to please others and ultimately start taking ourselves too seriously. We often fall into the trap of the misguided notion that somehow hard work and fun are not compatible.
I believe that people are intrinsically drawn to the smiling and enthusiastic person. For me, that person is Carolyn. Whether we are talking business (which is exactly what we are doing in the photo attached) or taking the mickey out of ourselves during runs or she is giving me alcohol on course (true story), we have the ability to completely ground each other and have some fun along the way. We also challenge each other to “jump in the pool” and get out of the comfort zone. This is where I have previously mentioned that I believe great things truly happen.
Some people just make you feel better when you're around them.
They are like sunshine to your soul and medicine for your mind.
