I know some leaders who are very serious. With a grimace and a closed hand they carefully monitor the work they do and how others perceive them.

When they make a mistake it is not a cause for laughter. It is a cause for correction.

There is no joy. There is no fun. And eventually, there is no life.

Don’t be so serious about what you do. You and I aren’t that big of a deal. We’re not. I promise.

Life is funny. Even when we get it wrong. (Sometimes especially when we are wrong!)

And I’ve learned something.

If you can’t laugh at yourself, other people will take you up on the opportunity.

Beat them to the punch(line.) Be willing to laugh at yourself.
