Our minds are very good at finding ways to worry at work. Think about it. Actually, don’t think about it, because that’s part of the problem. We think about it too much … Mark Leary, Ph.D., explains how over thousands of years, we have shifted from focusing on the present to obsessing about the future. We think so much about “what if” that we don’t realize the negative toll of letting our worries wander.
That’s why we need to replace our worry with humor. That’s right. Enjoying work — or taking it a step further, laughing at work — has a positive impact on you and the people around you.
