Fun is. Fun is not

Fun is. Fun is not

“There is no happy destination without a happy journey.”

Doing your best work is rarely easy.

You will have to push yourself. That can often feel like the opposite of fun.

Learning new ways comes with varying degrees of discomfort.

On the other hand, comfort zones are often thought of as fun.

But that is a place where dreams go to die.

Fun is not a pool table at work.

Fun is not M+M’s in reception.

Fun is not free coffee.

Fun is pride.

Fun is learning.

Fun is doing something you didn’t think that you could.

Fun is doing your life’s work.

Fun is reaching your potential.

And how that makes you feel.
