Several colleagues and I went out to a nice lunch today in memory of 2015.
We talked business, personal development, and relationships. During our conversation, I couldn't help but think how much fun my work life has been this year.
I started working at our digital creative agency only a few months ago, but I feel like the people I've met have been my long lost friends.
Those of you with agency experience know that the relationships you have with colleagues can be either really good or really bad.
When you work at an agency you often work long hours, operate on tight deadlines, and run on coffee or XYinence. It's easy to get annoyed with one another when things aren't going so well, so you have to find ways to chill and remind yourself to have fun.
I'm thankful for the leadership at our agency for incorporating fun elements into the daily grind.
This year we:
- Ate fancy lunches.. just because
- Closed down a restaurant on a random Tuesday night
- Took some afternoons off to watch movies
- Threw a huge party
- Danced the night way
It's the little things we do in daily hustle that keep pushing us forward to do great work.
I've had a lot of fun at work in 2015. I'm committed to making 2016 equally enjoyable.
Hustle hard and have fun while you're at it!
