Here, in Qunatox, we are all big fans of high spirits and positive atmosphere because that’s the main thing which makes those less-fun parts of the business easier. That is simply a defense mechanism for every possible problem.
Problems and challenges in work will and will be always present, and the only question is how will we handle them. Our way is a quality joke and it has shown amazing results. It makes us feel like we are not working so much, and in my personal opinion, something which improves creativity in its special way.
I’m surrounded by people who make every situation little bit humorous whenever its possible. Of course, this is related only to our personal relationships inside our company.
When it comes to the interaction with our clients, humor is left aside and all the focus is on the job and problem-solving.
I’m not sure about the others, but here, we do it this way! As much fun as it can be, whenever it’s possible.
Of course, it is not always easy to find the balance between serious and unserious parts of the work, but it is possible. I am the living proof of that. As soon as you manage to find this balance, the productivity of the individual person, team, and company grows, and they all make progress.
Let’s take, for example, a situation where a very serious problem arises, where no “normal” person would ever think of joking. We have two ways of handling these situations:
The message is clear – with a good team, you can not fail!
This attitude encourages the desire to solve the problems and leaves a victorious feeling after work, unlike the first way, where only the surplus of stress would be brought to the home. And I have to warn you that both ways are tempting and both have pros and cons. Therefore, you should always keep in mind to keep the balance between these two.
If you ever have trouble getting on the better, brighter side or simply kneel in front of the problem, there is one very wise saying: “If a problem is fixable, if a situation is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry. If it’s not fixable, then there is no help in worrying. There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever.” – Dalai Lama.
As for today, this is, of course, not to be missed. This day should be used to get closer to colleagues, in the way that, I believe, is most popular – the fun way!
Here are some practical tips on how to “get closer” with your colleague, on this day. Whichever way you chose, make sure that the person you are organizing prank for is close enough to you and has a good sense of humor.
Typing ghost – All you have to do is to, while the “victim” is absent, plugin your keyboard on its computer. Then, wait for he/she to return and to start working. When you see or hear that he/she began typing, start typing yourself! Make it low profile, in the beginning, you don’t want to be busted. After that, start making mistakes often and your colleague’s reaction will be hilariously funny.
These are just some of the ideas. There are countless other jokes and pranks and it’s all about your inspiration and creativity.
Would you add another joke to the list? What kind of fun and pranks has been organized in your office?
