display_description The Power of Having FunHow Meaningful Breaks Help You Get More Done (and Feel Fantastic!)Most of us put work first and leave fun for last. Fun is considered a diversion, a distraction, and, at best, an occasional reward. But speaker, consultant, and bestselling author Dave Crenshaw says we've got it all wrong. By making fun a top priority-working meaningful, enjoyable breaks into each day, week, month, and year-we will not only be happier but be more successful too! Crenshaw guides the reader through a personal experiment to discover how regular respites from work and life improve productivity, job satisfaction, and happiness. Citing scientific evidence and case studies, he explains how these "oases" from the workday desert refresh and recharge us. And because fun is too important to be left to chance, Crenshaw provides a systematic approach to make having fun a vital part of your time management plan.Using real-world examples, thought-provoking exercises, and a healthy dose of wit, Crenshaw details a five-stage process that has helped thousands of people find a variety of satisfying oases. These fun breaks are scheduled just as solidly as meetings and deadlines and last anywhere from a few minutes to a few weeks. He shows how to use the process on the job and at home and even how to create a workplace culture that values the power of fun. Fun and success are two sides of the same coin-you can't have one without the other. This is a book that has real power to change lives, make work more enjoyable and rewarding, and strengthen families and relationships. Let Dave Crenshaw lower your stress, raise your results, and restore recess to your routine.
