Here's A Quick Way To Fish

Do you know how to fish? Not many people know how to go fishing. In this post, I will teach you the "Fish Philosophy" by Stephen C. Lundin, Ph.D.,, the authors of Fish Tales.

Four principles anchored the Fish Philosophy:
1. "Play"
2. "Make their day"
3. "Be there"
4. "Choose your attitude"

According to the authors of Fish Tales, the "Fish Philosophy," is a twelve weeks program. It is a program that is geared for work and your personal life. Well let's go fishing.

Let's go fishing and hook the fishes

Not many people go fishing and have luck catching their first fish. When you go fishing, you have to know where the fishes are and when to throw your line. For the most part, you cannot catch any fishes if you don't know how to play. Now you'll learn about the importance of play.

The importance of play

Play brings spontaneity and creativity to work. It is a way to build energy among staff in a lighthearted way. It operates in a less stressful environment and gives each employee more legs. Play brings passion, focus, commitment, and fun to work. So now, you know why people play at work and the possibilities that can open from play.

We cannot talk about play without talking about teamwork. For the next post, I will include some team-building activities you can use at work when you implement the "Fish Philosophy." Well that's all for now. Put your "Play" on for the next lesson.
