the way you do your work, even
if there is not a choice in the work
itself." Lesson #2: Play "Can be serious about business,
but still have fun in the way you
conduct business."
Lesson #3: Make Their Day "Focusing your attention on ways
to make another person's day
provides a constant flow of
positive feelings." Lesson #4: Be Present "Be present and fully engaged
in your work." After learning these lessons, Mary Jane

Your collegues, customers, team members, and you yourself will be thankful. Find ways to play. We can be serious about our work without being serious about ourselves. Stay focused in order to be present when your customers and team members most need you.
