How Much Fun Is Your Workplace?

Gretchen Rubin

I read a fascinating book, The Levity Effect

, by Adrian Gostick and Scott Christopher. It's about how "levity" can transform the workplace. They make a powerful case for why levity is an extremely effective tool for helping people to work better.

Now, you might be thinking, as I did, "Levity would sure be tough for me, I'm not particularly funny, and I'm not particularly outgoing."

But what the authors mean by "levity" is really a sense of "lightness."

Ah, I thought, I'm trying! The Ninth of my Twelve Commandments is "Lighten up."
