Greg’s Answer

Fun and work are not mutually exclusive, you can have both. Work doesn't have to be limited to "something that I have to do to live." People like working hard at tasks that incorporate activities that they enjoy doing. If you love to work with your hands and create things, look for a career where you can build something. Most people that do not have fun at their jobs are doing something that either they are not good at or don't like doing. I find that when you do something that you are good at, then you are often both successful at it AND enjoy doing it, and then work is fun. You will often find that other people with similar interests are also in that same role, and that also can be fun.

You can definitively have fun at work! The most obvious answer would be to look for a profession that you are passionate about, and that's true. But since working in most cases is a social activity, look for a place where you feel cvomfortable, supported, where people make you feel better. Also this needs something from you: and that's that you have to contribute with this fun environment. Be kind, honest and supportive with your coworkers!

Having fun in any situation is in YOUR control. Ideally you’ll work in a career that you love, but if you don’t... MAKE it fun!

You can certainly have fun while doing work! Have a positive attitude and make people you work with smile and laugh. This will create a lively and fun work environment.

I will speak from my experience.

I have found work to be fun when I have worked for companies that put effort into maintaining a good culture and whose mission I agree with. A good culture/mission can give purpose, growth and fulfillment.

When I have worked for myself, I have found work to be fun when the purpose of what I am doing resonates with me.

When you are looking for a job, make sure that you do your research on the company culture. See if the company values and culture align with what you are looking for. You will likely spend the majority of your day with the people you work with, so make sure you find a place that fits what you are looking for and you join a team with like minded individuals that you genuinely enjoy being with!

Lauren’s Answer

Find a career or job that’s you are very interested in and it will help you look forward to going to work every day. Stay positive and respectful and most co-workers will be the same way towards you. Don’t just show up to work and be there, but make a difference, contribute, ask questions and learn as much as you can and work will turn into an extremely positive experience.

G. Mark’s Answer

The best answer I've seen is in the saying, "Do for work what you would do for play and never work another day." Now, obviously there are those of us who have to do work in jobs that we would never do for play ever. But make it a priority to strive for positions and training and a career that gets us closer and closer to activities you actually enjoy. One of the things I always tell my students is that you're generally better at things you like, and you generally like things you're good at. The overall situation is a win-win. You have more fun and the people you perform the functions for benefit because you're better at them.

Now you may have to exercise some creativity and drive and a bit of "grunt work" to make it happen -- to end up getting paid for something you think is a whole lot of fun. But consider the benefits to you and those around you. And remember, when you're gone, what lives on is the good you do.
