Kicking the backside out of it

Shall we aspire to:

The singular fun of transient Pleasure?

or

The shared enjoyment of sustained Passion?

or

The defining fulfilment of realised Purpose?

I choose all three. I choose to:

Meet new people in the foothills,

Make new friends when it inevitibly gets tough,

Reach the top together.

Then:

See another summit,

Start again, with one or two of our new friends.

A couple of years ago I began adding as an objective of all projects, that we enjoy it.

Back then I felt brave adding it on at the end. Now I put it down first. I insist we kick the  backside out of it.

Do you?

Stuart is an expert in lots of things, most notably, money laundering (yes, really) .

Cheers,

Humour and the workplace need to co-exist. If I were to turn up every day to throw ourselves into the grinder without a close colleague’s wry sarcastic quip on my new shoes or hearing the latest disaster to befall Clive from Sales as he tries in vain…
