If I EVER read another blog post on work / life balance I might gag. Yes, we all know that we should try to work less, and have fun more, right?
But Wii often miss that Wii not only need to spend time “not working”, but Wii need to spend time purposely “having fun.” In my motivational keynote speeches I encourage people to play and “Act Happy.” It’s one of those Fake it Until You Make it Strategies. And it works.
My point? Pick something NOW that gets you physically involved in creatingf joy, fun or levity. It might be as simple as leaving a crank phone call for a pal, taking your dog for a walk, or stealing the neighbor-kid’s Wii for a couple of hours.
Wii don’t have a Wii at home, but recently tried one out with some Denver pals. Check out this short video:
What are you doing today to physically get involved in creating fun? Come one! DO SOMETHING!

Motivational Keynote Speaker, Joker, Fan of Wii
I recently worked for the DAU — Defense Acquisition University — in Huntsville, Alabama. This is a hardworking group of military and civilians who need to understand the very complex acquisition process. It’s a tough and tedious job. And it’s important. (Just ask the men and women who need parts and supplies overseas.)
Happily, it went well. Really well. It was a terrific group.
The best part of the motivational speech for me was watching these men and women change during our time together. Predictably, they started out pretty wary. “What?! A funny motivational speaker at a military conference?” But after the first few minutes they began to relax and get into it — and to laugh.
It was clear to me — even as an outsider — that this group NEEDED to laugh.
Does your group (military or civilian) need a speaker who can help them with perspective, morale and attitude? Wouldn’t it be cool if this motivational speaker was funny? I think so too. Let’s talk. Go to the contact page.
