Anyone who has worked in a bank, or any private company, for that matter, knows how work can take on a big toll on one's life and health. A five-day-a-week, eight-hour-a-day work-and-no-fun-within can practically drain out the life juices unless one has an outlet to balance out the equation somehow. But wouldn't it be great if work already had the fun within in order to come out of the battlefield still smiling and eager to do another day's fight the following day?
This might seem too idealistic or fanciful for some; but a company, such as The Keeley Consulting Group, is actually already doing it. All-business or all-work-and-no-fun no longer appeals in the modern business world as it has always had in the past. Business leaders know what people look for in their life and in their jobs and providing the avenues for people to express themselves more fully in their work takes nothing more than providing the balance that they need and look for in other areas of their life.
Rare though it may seem for people or companies in business to talk of work and fun in one breath, it is an important principle that has been neglected for so long. Attaining balance is a natural law that we humans cannot break without disrupting the essential cycles that engender order and success in our lives and within our communities.
