Recently I had a day without meetings and found I was missing them. I realized that I actually look forward to going to meetings. I couldn’t help but wonder why any sane person would enjoy meetings so much. After dismissing the idea that I was losing my mind I realized I was addicted and needed my fix. I needed to get to meetings to see my friends and laugh. I missed the high of a good belly laugh.
There are many constants at the Fool. but, one is that you won’t attend meetings without laughing. We simply have a good time in whatever we do – even meetings. That is not to say our meetings are unproductive. I’d say we are more focused than most at ensuring our meetings have clear outcomes. We are able to balance the needs at hand while still entertaining each other.
A day without meetings might be a day with less laughter. I certainly have favorite Fools who can get the best laughs. But, it is often the Fools you don’t expect who break out the one liner that gets the giggles that won’t stop. Adding some fun and laughter to meetings is nothing but an improvement.
