The Power of Having Fun
Fun is something you have to earn, right? You work hard, and then maybe once a year you get to enjoy yourself on a vacation. And after a lifetime of this, you retire and finally do what you want. Dynamic speaker and consultant Dave Crenshaw calls this the culture of WISH: you slave away and hope it will be Worth It Someday, Hopefully. And it's all wrong.

Crenshaw shows that by putting fun first—carefully scheduling enjoyable, meaningful, and refreshing breaks throughout your day, week, month, and year—not only will you be happier, you'll be a lot more productive too. Fun has the power to turn your life into a WIN—what you do will feel like it's Worth It Now. 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 discover their personal “oases”—specific actions and activities that they find renewing and energizing—and make them a priority. Readers will be delighted to find a book that lowers their stress, raises their results, and restores recess to their routine.
