18 Nov Laugh and Fall. Often.
“I guarantee that two things will happen today: Brittany and Kaye will giggle uncontrollably and Nick will physically injure himself.”
– Jeff Puthoff
Some time ago our entire company took the afternoon off and played some indoor beach volleyball. Jeff made the statement above beforehand because Brittany and Kaye have a tendency to laugh until they cry for no reason at all, and Nick tends to fall down and break things a lot. We’re all sort of predictable like that.
In our office, we found that it’s important to not be afraid to laugh often, and to not be afraid to fall down. In fact, we make a fool of ourselves doing both quite frequently. Learning to laugh until we look ridiculous, especially at our mistakes, is a valuable practice to get into.
(Oh, and just for the record, yes, Brittany and Kaye laughed until they cried, but Nick did not injure himself. Tony took care of that by giving himself a concussion.)
