Imagine waking up every morning to work in an organization that is fun and enjoyable. The likelihood that you’d be more productive, engaged, and stick with your current employer would skyrocket. The truth is, we tend to thrive in and associate longer with organizations and people who make us happy.
Keeping work environments and life fresh, exciting, and fun ensures continuity, productivity, and enjoyment. One of the biggest champions of enjoying work is Paul J. Long. Paul is a prolific speaker, bestselling author, and podcaster who founded Fundamism. Having served over a decade in corporate America, Paul was tired, stressed, and unsatisfied. Knowing that so many people feel the same in their jobs, Paul followed his passion and through Fundamism, started showcasing the power of fun in improving quality of life at work and home.
Below, Paul shares some tips on connecting to life through F.U.N. through his concept of “Fundamism,” defined as the “FUNdamentals of a F.U.N and optimistic lifestyle.”
Explore your uniqueness
We are all endowed with different talents and capabilities. The foundation (F in F.U.N.) to creating joy in life and work is to find what you are passionate about and pursue it. It may be a higher calling, a life purpose, or goal that you wish to engage until you get results. This will require disregarding what friends or society expects of you. To discover your uniqueness, Paul advises you to take a moment for self-reflection and examination. A coach may come in handy to help discover your untapped talents, so take advantage of one.
Understand and appreciate others
Paul observes that cultivating a work culture of fun and enjoyment can impact how you feel and behave when working or interacting with others. You will find life and work begin overflowing with joy, fun, and fulfillment when you take time to understand (U in F.U.N.) and appreciate other people’s perspectives. When you are deliberate in finding their motivation, mindset, what gives them joy or satisfaction, and perspective, your interactions with others become so much easier and meaningful.
Work on areas requiring improvement
There are choices to be made, whether you wish to establish a fun-filled and enjoyable lifestyle or choose one that is dull, boring, and often unproductive. Unlocking positive energies in people and addressing areas of conflict will help organizations thrive and improve on their performance. Paul has helped hundreds of organizations identify the next steps (N in F.U.N.) in exploring gaps and addressing them to not only improve productivity but also create an environment defined by joy, FUN, and fulfillment.
