Most of us don't think we need to be told how to have fun. Yet when you take time to think about it, most of us don't understand what it means to really have fun.
How to have fun
This article by Craig Childs from LifeHack.com, and the linked movie give some ideas how to start having fun again.
SlowLeadership.com came across an interesting site defining the 8 principles of fun, at eightprinciples.com. It’s a site that is so in love with a few simple rules to enjoy life more, that they’re selling screensavers and things promoting them.
However, Slowleadership did something nice and gave a little run down of the 8 rules, while adding an important one of their own.
- Stop hiding who you really are.
- Start being intensely selfish.
- Stop following the rules.
- Start scaring yourself.
- Stop taking it all so damn seriously.
- Start getting rid of the crap.
- Stop being busy.
- Start something.
- Don’t worry what others will think about you.
When do people perform best at any task, from sport to nuclear physics? When they’re relaxed, intent on what they’re doing and more of less oblivious of everything else. When they’re having fun. So loosen up and enjoy your life.
