Hard Working Clown

On stressful days and in difficult moments at the office I like to imagine I have on a big red clown nose. I know that might sound weird to readers of this blog but I am recommending this method of stress dedication. Think of the clown nose as a productivity tool.

I had the pleasure of attending the Performing the World Conference http://www.performingtheworld.org/
in the Fall where I met Patch Adams and other hospital clowns. I was truly inspired!

Being a clown is serious business. The ability to use our playfulness to create a clown version of ourselves shifts how we see and how we interact with others – we can be more joyful and I have found, more productive.

I’m putting my imaginary clown nose on and gearing up for a playful and productive Friday.
