Monday Tip: Share something funny

The Chief Happiness Officer's monday tipsToday’s Monday tip comes from Nimmy from Bangalore, who wrote a very nice review of my book, and then went on to add some ideas for making your work day a little happier.

One of her suggestions is to read something funny every day and share it with your colleagues.

Try to go beyond Dilbert and the usual list of 200 blonde jokes :o)

Nirmala suggests Calvin & Hobbes or PG Wodehouse.

I would add Over the Hedge, Cute Overload or Snopes. And if you’re among geeks: Player vs.player or User Friendly.

Find something funny and share it. Print it out and pass it around or hang it on the bulletin board.

Thanks Nimmy!

  1. I would like to share a practice i started when my company moved the office to a new building a couple of years ago.
    When i first arrived in the building i met a serious security gard that looked me like asking: “Who are you? and Where are you going?”…

    i said good morning and entered the elevator…. next day i planned and started playing an experiment to see how a smile would change the reaction of the man.

    When i entered the building i looked at the man and wished him a good morning with a sincere big smile, in fact i meant that… and that made him change his serious face to a grin.. and wished me back a good morning…

    I have been doing “the big smile experiment” ever since and has become and anchor….. every time i get to my office i enter the building wishing Good Morning! with a sincere big smile.. and that makes me start the day with smile in my face.. and in my heart..

    And the relation with the security guard is great.. we chat for a moment when we run into each other….. making my day, and i hope his, more enjoyable.

    as the result was so good.. i have added this practice to my every day live.. and try to give away sincere smiles to whom ever i found…

    Good Morning!! :-)))
