The Missing Skill To Work Productivity

Note: This is part 5 of a 5 part series detailing why it’s important to have humor in the workplace.  This post links the previous four discussions together and explains how it all adds up to increased productivity and work satisfaction.

As you’ve learned from the entire Starting with Humor Series, humor can improve health, build relationship, make better leaders, and is just fun.  Humor and creativity are linked together, meaning you’ll see an increase in creative problem solving.  Stress relief will help you from becoming overly taxed from your job.  Your physical health can improve, meaning you’ll be better equipped to handle your job.  With better relationships and more effective leadership, your entire team can work harder/smarter/better than before.

Dale Carnegie said, “people rarely succeed at anything unless they have fun doing it.”

Abraham Lincoln quipped, “I have always believed that a good laugh was good for both the mental and physical digestion.”

Mitlon Berle exclaimed, “Laughter is an instant vacation!”

The power of humor lies in the fact that it is beneficial in so many ways.  You add all of these positives together and you get increased productivity and work satisfaction.  So make it a point to lighten the mood and share some fun, after all:

“Humor is mankind’s greatest blessing.” – Mark Twain
