I work a lot with enthusiasm management, and Ive learned that enthusiasm is the key performance indicator to success at my workplace.
From this blog: http://www.positivityblog.com/index....-how-to-do-it/
Enthusiasm is wonderful. Why?
Off the top of my head, here are four powerful reasons:
It makes life a lot more fun. Feeling unenthusiastic, bored and apathetic isnít pleasurable or fun. It makes life dreary, slow and painful. Enthusiasm on the other hand is like an inner sun that makes life easier, shinier and more enjoyable.
Itís attractive to people. Enthusiasm is probably one of the most attractive qualities a person can have. Itís a quality that makes you attractive in all kinds of relationship Ė personal or professional Ė and itís a wonderful quality to find in other people. It tends to make all kinds of interactions and relationships whole lot more fun and with enthusiasm you can fulfil more of the potential of any situation or experience.
Powerful communication. Hail the almighty body language and voice tonality when you want to communicate something. If you are enthusiastic it not only makes you more attractive, it also makes your words and message so much more powerful since when you are feeling enthusiastic then that feeling comes through in your body language and voice tonality. And those two parts of make up over 90 percent of communication.
It gets things done. As Steve Droke says above: enthusiasm is the switch. With enthusiasm things get done and they often get done better and more easily than if you were to muster up the will to do them in an unenthusiastic way.
So here is what I want you to do...
Got a printer? Nice!
Everyday you print out a funny pic and hang it at the same place every day for 2 weeks. Put a text on the pic and make it more personal. And when 2 weeks is over, put a text: "tomorrow mr xx (name of coworker) will post a hilarious pic here" , and the day after mr xx will post a joke so funny you gonna laugh through the whole day, and so on...
see what happens....
For funny pics go on daily pic dump here:
Ill bet your workplace will change to the better, all because of you!!
