Thanks for sharing your story, Joe. I’m thrilled that you’ve found these principles to be true in your everyday life.

The biggest challenge to treating work like fun is a toxic culture. When you try to be a Linchpin (as Seth Godin says) in a world where cogs are preferred, it’s hard to bring emotional energy to your work.

But you can.

And soon, when you’ve had enough, you’ll find someone who values your talents.

Keep having fun, and making a difference. And thanks for reading this!
